Powered by Ascending Technologies, the Falcon 8 is a rotary-wing UAS designed for inspection and monitoring or survey and mapping applications.
There are two Falcon 8 models to choose from depending on your application:
A Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ810 can optionally be added to either the GeoEXPERT or InspectionPRO for live videography.
The most frequently used features are implemented in the Mobile Ground Station firmware-enabling operation without the need for a PC in the field. Automatic compensations are made for heavy wind gusts or other events, which minimizes the need for pilot corrections.
Take off from any location and be able to work even in heavy winds – the Falcon 8 is resistant to magnetic interferences and temperature variations.
With many levels of built-in redundancies – three autopilots, redundant electronics, a redundant propulsion system, and redundant radio links – the Falcon 8 ensures top performance, precision and safety.
Using best-in-class sensors and a camera mount compensating for abrupt maneuvers, the Falcon 8 delivers incredibly detailed survey and inspection data – revealing the finest cracks and heat leaks.
When applications change and an alternate payload is needed, simply remove the current and insert the other.
