AIRSHIP V2 VTOL UAV in Flight
The AIRSHIP Endurance V1, V2 and V5 UAVs are developed to operate autonomously through an unmanned aerial system (UAS) that provides 1st Responder customers with a superior real-time video view for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). The AIRSHIP Endurance VTOL UAV lateral and rear turbines are a combination ducted fan with integrated Solar Turbine Air Accelerators (compressed air) that support the UAV clean tech propulsion system. Both electric propulsion systems can be used simultaneously or independently. For low acoustics stealth flight, only the integrated air accelerators are enabled.
These solar turbines provide thrust propulsion required by the UAV vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), consume dramatically less energy during forward fixed wing flight operation, and are designed to fly with a multi-day flight endurance. With its efficient design, the AIRSHIP Endurance VTOL UAV quickly operates flight management and delivers sustainable propulsion via applied external solar film, a hydrogen fuel cell, and internal rechargeable ultracapacitors for stored electricity.
