VECTOR – 2in1 vertical take-off reconnaissance UAV

Flexible and enduring, the Vector provides flight and surveillance characteristics that are exceeding performance of current UAV platforms in service all over the world.

The ability to operate in the most difficult terrain (VTOL) combined with extremely low noise emission (motor off silent mode) makes the Vector the perfect UAV for a wide range of non invasive aerial operations.

An encrypted mesh IP link sends video streams up to a range of 15+ km. A flight time of up to 120 minutes speaks for itself. All combined in a compact and robust electric VTOL UAV.

The 2in1 System design opens up further applications with the “Scorpion” configuration – By removing the wings and attaching a separate set of copter arms a dedicated multi copter platform becomes available for an even wider variety of mission applications. Either use a VTOL fixed-wing or a conventional copter – in both cases you only need one system to train on and to deploy it on site.

Description

VECTOR The 2in1 Vertical Take-off Reconnaissance UAV

THE NEXT GENERATION of eVTOL fixed-wing UAVs

The mathematical definition of a vector fits very well for the latest UAV from Quantum-Systems. It can face any direction: upward, forward or down. That’s exactly what Vector  from Quantum-Systems is capable to do. Vertical take-off. Energy efficient long range fixed wing flight and back to a vertical landing. All automatic, no pilot or operator input needed – Just fly.

GIMBAL PAYLOAD – INTELLIGENCE IN THE SKY

In order to provide relevant intelligence for better decision making we integrate high value sensors with powerful optics while keeping size and weight at a minimum. The result is state of the art stability combined with unmatched robustness. Thanks to its modular concept, the front section of Vector & Scorpion can be equipped with different payloads.

  • MISC: KLV-Stream, GeoLock, Image stabilizion

QBASE 3D – C2 MISSION SOFTWARE

Our self-developed software allows you to dynamically adjust the mission in flight to mark targets on the map or in video before, during or after the mission, to show or detect critical points.

QBase 3D records the full mission on the GCS (including video and aircraft data) and replays it at any time, while recording is continued. The software supports the operator with warnings when the aircraft is about to exceed its limits. Overwriting them is always possible if the mission requires it – Just fly.

TRANSPORT CASE & BACKPACK

When disassembled, Scorpion and Vector can be transported comfortably and safely by one person. Only a few steps are required to get the systems ready for use.

As standard, the transport case has external dimensions of 850x470x280 mm. It is IP67 (submersible and floating) certified and therefore suitable for the most adverse conditions. As an option, it is also possible to use the all-terrain backpack.

MESH IP ENCRYPTED DATA LINK

Radio communication, which meets the requirements of modern applications like search and rescue, anti-poaching, wildlife observation and maintenance of industrial facilities requires more range, data throughput and reliability than ever before. Self-healing, digital link management and automatic rerouting are no longer just options. They are a must. That is why Quantum-Systems uses a state of the art encrypted mesh IP link which delivers unprecedented performance never seen before in challenging environments.The data link hardware consists of a robust handheld unit on the ground and an OEM module onboard the UAV. Sector antennas can boost the range to 25+ km. No tracking antenna or moving parts are necessary.

This setup enables an 128/256 bit AES encrypted 10+Mbit data stream and up to 25+ km (sector antennas) video and command & control range.

The hardware is optimized for tactical applications and comes in rugged, IP 67 rated casings. It uses sophisticated MIMO mesh network technology. The data link control is fully integrated into QBase 3D including link and power management.

Select your UAS mission scenario

Providing information for validating decisions with a non invasive approach is only one of the main possible use cases for Vector & Scorpion. The advanced EO & IR sensors provide a significant benefit for rescue and emergency services. This real time information is vital such scenarios.
