CES 2021 – Autel Announces Next Generation Dragonfish

AUTEL ANNOUNCES NEXT GENERATION DRAGONFISH

AUTEL ROBOTICS ANNOUNCES NEXT GENERATION VERTICAL TAKEOFF/LANDING (VTOL) AIRCRAFT WITH MULTIPLE PAYLOADS, 2 HOUR FLIGHT TIME, AND FULLY AUTOMATED INTELLIGENT FLIGHT

Bothell, WA.–(PRNews)–Jan 11, 2021– Autel Robotics today announced that Autel, a world leader in commercial/enterprise unmanned aircraft (drone) and aerial imaging, will release the new Dragonfish flight platform in second quarter, 2021. The fixed-wing aircraft offers a 120 minute flight time, take off/landing in space-restricted areas, rapid deployment/assembly time of under three minutes, and a range of up to 30KM. 

Adaptive tracking allows the aircraft to track vehicles, persons, or other moving objects from a range of 2000 meters, and allows the aircraft to self-manage terrain, points of interest, and automated flight management.

Payloads include a FLIR® Boson Radiometric camera at 640×512/30Hz resolution/refresh rate, 1” sensor photographic cameras, and other payloads for specific vertical requirements. The system is expandable to fit into virtually any workflow, although the Dragonfish was specifically designed for overwatch and other public safety uses. 

“We see the Dragonfish as a next-level aircraft designed for public safety, government, and military applications, with a long flight time, small carry package, multiple purpose-built payloads, and intelligent flight capability,” said Gary DeLuca of Autel Robotics USA, “we anticipate broad acceptance in the security and protection industries.”

The Dragonfish’s unique tilt rotor design simplifies operation and maximizes performance and efficiency. With no complicated moving parts, the dragonfish is modular, waterproof, smart and reliable. The Dragonfish is mission ready right out of the box and includes powerful Al tracking capabilities and a multitude of modular payload options. An endurance of 120 mins (including payload) further augments the Dragonfish’s robust mission capabilities and pushes it significantly ahead against other VTOL competition. Additionally, the Dragonfish is equipped with two RTK modules for redundancy. Integrating the GNSS Base Station with the RTK modules, the Dragonfish may achieve centimeter accuracy with precise headings and strong anti-magnetic interference capabilities. These modules back up one another and greatly improves the quality of image metadata for photogrammetry while increasing flight precision and safety.

Ground Control Station

The high resolution (2048×1536), 9.7 inches, ultra-bright (1000 nits) TFT-LCD touchscreen ensures maximum visibility and practicality in all situations. Autel Ground Control Station is water, dust, and water resistant. Autel Robotics new antenna design allows the video transmission to reach up to 18.6 miles (30km) The Autel Robotics ground station controller has a battery life of up to 6 hours and can be operated indefinitely with a remote power source.

Autel is currently developing pricing tiers for various verticals for which the Dragonfish is appropriate. 

The Autel Robotics Dragonfish will be shown during the virtual Consumer Electronics Show 2021 in  January 11 – 14.  The Autel Robotics Dragonfish is currently available in AsiaPac, and will be soon available in the Americas.

WITNESS TO HISTORY

1908 was a big year for the world; the automobile found its way to the masses through the invention of the assembly line, created by Henry Ford. Not only did the mass-production line bring affordable prices, it also created the middle class. up

We’re in much the same birthspace; UAV/Drones are just beginning to grow into toddler-hood and millions of individuals (88% male, by some polls) are rapidly acquiring the skills and technology required to foster and grow this new industry.

Some view drones as mere toys, sideshows for businesses and leisure users.

Nothing could be further from accurate.

Drones (Some hate the word, yet it has rapidly become accepted in non-military circles) are being used in many industries already. Oil fields, solar fields, search and rescue, law enforcement, fire control, delivery of life-saving or retail goods, terrain mapping, agriculture, artists, wildlife management, mining, land management, fishing, cable/telecommunications inspection, real estate, and so many other industries are already using aerial technology. There are even underwater drones to inspect hulls of boats, ships, docks, etc.

What many may not immediately realize is the growth industry behind drones. Manufacturers aside, there are parts providers, technicians, sales people, support people, pilots, operators, and vendors of services. Colleges all across the globe are scrambling to develop programs similar to those that Humber College in Toronto, Ontario have had for a while now. Open source software drives commercially-focused drones such as those from 3DRobotics company, and computer-aided design plays a role in developing commercial custom drones.

Just as the automobile delivered the middle class to America and other parts of the world, the drone/UAV industry is poised to continue that weave in modern society whether in medicine, delivery, cinematography, transportation, or whatever else may come forward.

Whether it’s designing a custom solution for corporate or commercial work, or small-format cinematography, my team and I are here to assist you in taking full advantage of the shift in world progress.  We are committed to providing the most up-to-date information, advice, technology development, and resources to assuring our clients are presented with the most cost-effective, performance-balanced product possible.
