Rotomotion announced its smallest professional short endurance electric Vertical Take Off and Land Unmanned Aerial System (VTOL UAS), the SR5 Parvus. The SR5 is the most advanced professional VTOL UAS in its weight and payload class providing military-grade autonomous flight with features such as stable hoover, event- driven automatic craft return and pre-loaded map and flight path tracking that allows in-flight switching between manual and autonomous modes. The SR5 provides about 20 minutes of flight time and includes a 10X optical zoom SD camera that streams video to the ground controller in real time. The SR5’s state-of- the-art design and materials combined with Rotomotion’s autonomous flight controller provides the longest flight time and highest payload-to-aircraft weight ratio of any VTOL in its class. The complete take-off weight is less than 5 lbs, including the quick-change Lithium Polymer battery, a critical factor when deployment requires transportation on foot.
The SR5 Parvus is 34 inches long with a 31 inch Rotor and just over 9 inches high.
The video relayed by the SR5 in real-time is extremely clear and steady due to Rotomotion’s video stability and enhancement software, Rotovision, included with each model. The reliability and stability of the SR5 UAV to take-off, fly various patterns and land without any human intervention is due to Rotomotion’s sophisticated, patent-pending Autonomous Flight Control System (AFCS). All Rotomotion UAVs use the same control system, incorporating the AFCS, a GPS and a ground control system (GCS), with larger, gas powered, UAVs available for longer flight times and heavier payloads. The SR5 is Rotomotion’s smallest of five model sizes available.
