THE CUSTOMIZABLE AND ARCTIC-CAPABLE DRONE SYSTEM.
The PX-31 UAS is a multi-purpose unmanned aircraft system with the ability to carry a diverse suite of sensors and payloads serving user needs.
Usually, operators in need of an UAS for testing multiple types of sensors or payloads are required to design, construct and set up the complete aircraft system themselves. With the PX-31, we deliver a turn-key solution with a flight-ready aircraft. The payload can be mounted to a standardized payload frame on an interchangeable plate, enabling control of several payloads instead of tying an aircraft to a single payload.
The PX-31 UAS has redundant communication for beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) operations. A customizable combination of VHF/UHF, C-BAND and 4G systems provides communication range and bandwidth needed for most missions. For areas where no other systems provide coverage, Iridium Satellite communications are used.
Command and control can be distributed into a network-based setup enabling several UAS controlled from a central control room, with remote sites and crews in the field preparing, taking off, landing and servicing the aircraft. This setup enables control of a fleet of UAS over longer distances and point-to-point flights.
