Freshvale releases Heavy VTOL UAV 150H


FRESHVALE LTD released the brand-new HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H with the results of its pioneering mission in the far North. Unmanned helicopter HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H successfully performed the tests by delivering 150 kg cargo to 130 km demonstrating safe autonomous flight and economical fuel consumption (22-25 l/h). The mission was completed by the crew of 2 persons only – operator and technician. Also Freshvale Ltd has announced successful completion of a new test: verification of performance was carried out in the harsh environmental conditions of mountainous areas.

HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H is developed for continuous autonomous flights with maximum endurance of up to 8 hours being able to cover 800+ km in diverse weather conditions (-20oC to up to 50oC). Unmanned complex is suitable for transportation with standard trailer or 20ft container.

This UAV can be equipped with the wide range of mission-specific payloads and is suitable for the following missions:

- video surveillance and monitoring,
- thermal surveillance and monitoring,
- SAR surveillance and monitoring,
- LIDAR surveillance and inspections,
- Payload delivery and autonomous transporting,
- radio link range extension and retransmission,
- radio monitoring, direction finding and localization of radio emission sources,
- R&D flying laboratory (meteorology, hydrology etc.),
- transportation of goods,
- air crane, and more.

As for autopilot, the main feature of the AP.X automatic control system is a distributed architecture, when each component of the system has its own microcontroller providing data processing and communication with other components within the CAN network (Controller Area Network). The AP.X configuration allows to avoid loading the central processor with routine tasks by distributing management tasks to all system components. Flexible architecture of the AP.X allows to quickly connect various modules and systems that extend the functions of the unmanned platform, synchronize work with other robotic complexes -for example, it is possible for one operator to simultaneously control several different unmanned vehicles.

Being based on commercial “combat-proven” CH-7 helicopter, HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H provides its users with the most affordable OpEx and CapEx in such form-factor, reliable performance, simple and easily-accessible maintenance/ repair.

New HEAVY VTOL UAV 150H using the Manned-to-Unmanned technology. This platform for military, law enforcement, intelligence, and emergency end users will change the concepts of operations of artillery, air defense, intelligence, special operations. Additionally, it has multiple use cases related to the delivery of cargo (both industrial and commercial users): offshore oil and gas, hard to reach locations, regular deliveries in rural areas – these are the fields for technological breakouts with new UAV.

The main advantages of Manned-to-Unmanned converted unmanned aerial vehicles are the lower cost of their purchase and operation, the safety of the pilot and crew, as well as the elimination of the "human factor". Indeed, according to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), at least 80% of all aviation incidents and accidents occur due to erroneous actions and failures in human performance both in the air and on the ground.
