AEROVISIÓN has developed and set up the so called FULMAR AERIAL TELEDETECTION SYSTEM. This consists of a small-size, self-piloted UAV with capabilities to take and transmit real time video or infrared images, a launcher, a ground control station, and a recovering net. The system´s versatility is such that it can complement or even successfully substitute other more expensive systems, like helicopters and airplanes used so far in many applications.
The FULMAR vehicle is a flying wing of an innovative design. It features very good stability and a high lift-drag ratio, as well as a long endurance due to its low consumption.
Its excellent aerodynamic efficiency accounts for its wide range of speeds and climb rates. The composite materials used in its construction are exceptionally resistant and provide optimum protection to the payload. Its structural design supports +/-6g accelerations in all the axes of movement. The aircraft has been also designed to land on water on a pneumatic skid.
The FULMAR system is easy to operate, since its take-off, flight, and landing are automatic and completely programmable by means of GPS-3D waypoints, in the ground control station. This station also serves to direct the movements and zoom of the onboard camera, which is moreover gyro-stabilized and geo-referenced.
