X55 – multi-role utility drone for 3-hour flights


New from Arcsky: the X55 is a quad-rotor unmanned aerial automobile platform with distinctive flight time and payload capabilities. One of many key differentiators of the X55 is the modularity and interchangeability of energy sources. Inside seconds, the drone can go from utilizing battery energy (utilizing the Battery Module) to hybrid gas-electric energy (utilizing the Hybrid Module). Moreover, there’s a bottom-mount battery tray choice that permits for top-mount payloads. With the Hybrid Module, the X55 can obtain as much as 3 hour flight occasions, and may accommodate payloads as much as 6 kilos. With the Battery Module, the X55 can carry as much as 20-pound payloads, for as much as 23 minutes. The X55 has a common mounting platform and rail system under the deck of the drone to permit for virtually any business or industrial payload to be mounted and flown. The X55 might be run autonomously, with missions that may be programmed through waypoints and industry-standard floor management stations.

For simple integration with quite a lot of payloads, the X55 presents an adjunct energy port, which might ship 5V, 12V, or 44.4V (12S) energy, and an auxiliary communications port, which gives entry to CAN, UART, PWM, SBus, and I2C outputs, so as to management gimbals, servos, drop-kits, and quite a lot of customized built-in options. The communication bay of the airframe offers entry to FPV, receiver, and telemetry module connections, permitting the operator to customise these objects if desired.

The entire system might be transported with ease, through the use of the optionally available transport circumstances. The airframe folds right into a compact quantity in lower than a minute, and the Hybrid Module has its personal devoted case.

The default controller is the Herelink, which is an built-in controller, floor station, and digital transmission system that has the flexibility to plan missions and automate flights, along with providing a spread of as much as 12 miles (20 km) in preferrred circumstances. Different industrial controllers are additionally simply supported and might be built-in by request.

The X55 is RTK succesful and solely requires the setup of the bottom RTK station to make the most of this characteristic, which then gives centimeter-level accuracy and significantly better efficiency in position-holding (loiter) modes. An optionally available terrain-following rangefinder is obtainable, which will help to keep away from collisions in various terrain circumstances, in addition to enhance the altitude-holding efficiency in lots of conditions. Lastly, quite a lot of FPV cameras might be built-in, permitting excessive definition stay video feed, instantly on the bottom station or controller.

The primary items will likely be delivery in December 2022, and are manufactured in our Minneapolis, MN facility. NDAA compliant variations of the X55 can be found for people who require that certification.
