MUNINN VX1 – HYBRID DRONE FOR RESEARCH
Sky-Watch focus on usability and advanced sensor fusion technologies.The MUNINN VX1 UAV offers autonomous vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), combined with easy control of waypoints via our Navigator. This makes the drone simple to navigate and lets you focus on analyzing the data collected by the UAV. Rather than concentrating on the operation of the aircraft, the operator is able to focus on the large amount of data provided by the system or on mission objectives. Once deployed, the MUNINN VX1 UAV carries out its predefined mission objectives and provides real-time data needed for smart, fast and accurate decision making when scouting and mapping environments, landscaping or in situations of natural disasters.
DESIGNED AS A RESEARCH PLATFORM FOR VARIOUS PAYLOADS
DRONES FOR CIVILIANS
The use of drones in civilian applications are increasing. Due to the MUNINN VX1s VTOL capabilities operations are carried out time- and cost-efficient. With the MUNINN VX1 there is no need for expensive runways or launching systems. Its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) technology means the MUNINN VX1 is ready to go, and return safely, virtually anywhere.
OPTIMAL FOR DEFENCE USE
The MUNINN VX1 is a versatility and flexible platform, due to its combined VTOL and fixed-wing system. This enables deployment from smaller compounds and vessels situated in remote or complex environments, only limited by the users imagination. Of course, the MUNINN VX1 integrates seamlessly with various battle management systems (BMS) and data distribution systems.
ARCTIC RESEARCH AND SURVEILLANCE
Maritime applications in the arctic region pushes the MUNINN VX1 platform to new levels. The VTOL capability facilitates that the MUNINN VX1 can be deployed on vessels, which until now have been excluded from carrying mid-range drones for intelligence, surveillance and recognizance operations. The MUNINN VX1 can be used for environmental monitoring due to its modular payload system.
The MUNINN VX1 is currently under development. Sky-Watch is working together with the Technical University of Denmark, the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation, and Boeing on the MUNINN VX1 SMART UAV project, which will result in a completely new type of drone for collection of data in unreachable locations. Our efforts aim at developing a new generation of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAVs that combines the advantages of existing rotorcraft UAVs with those of fixed-wing aircraft for longer range and endurance. It will be controlled with Sky-Watch’s intuitive Navigator and will have the same autonomous advantages as known from our Huginn X1.
