Sky-Watch invited to United Nations Technology Fair

At the invites-only United Nations Technology Fair 2015, Danoffice and Sky-Watch are present with both the Sky-Watch VTOL Huginn X1 UAV and the Cumulus One fixed-wing mapping drone. A great interest for both products has been shown and today is the final day of the fair.

The United Nations provide peace and security around the world by working to prevent conflicts; helping parties in conflict make peace; peacekeeping; and creating the conditions to allow peace to hold and flourish – at Danoffice and Sky-Watch we want to contribute and create a safer world through technology together.

Sky-Watch Huginn X1 featured in IFF Magazine!

The Huginn X1 is featured in the International Firefighting Magazine, March edition (Issue 45).
The article describes how the Copenhagen Fire Brigade uses the Huginn X1 as a first responder to create situational overview within seconds! Drones has been tested by the Copenhagen Fire Brigade in the last year and has become a interesting player in personnel safety and emergency management.

At Sky-Watch we always strive to create a safer world through technology and this is one step further!

Muninn VX1

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.
