Flint Hills Solutions (FHS) and UAV Navigation announced a strategic partnership to work together in North America and integrate their joint technologies into the unmanned aerial system or UAS (Inmanned Aerial System), vertical take-off and landing or VTOL (Vertical Take) -Off and Landing), completely autonomous from the FH-900 series. The combined capabilities of the two companies represent a significant step in the development of a next generation UAS that will demonstrate high, long-lasting, open payload integration capability. Their combined efforts will provide unmatched business solutions for agriculture, infrastructure inspection, package delivery, construction management and surveying, to name a few.
The combination of long life, fast response, high load and quiet electric VTOL UAS provides an incredible new resource for our business customers who want to fly in harsh weather conditions, out of line of sight and in large, varied areas. To date, most customers are regulated by small, multi-rotor drones that are expensive, cannot 80 percent be used due to the wind, and are made in China before the US and its allies, said Roger Powers, president. and CEO of Flint Hills Solutions. The FH-900 helicopters fly UAV Navigation’s advanced Vector autopilot systems, as well as other subsystems from this company that have a MIL rating and have been used in many controlled and uncontrolled defense and commercial airspaces and missions.
In addition to offering the advanced helicopter platform, propulsion systems and landing glider options, FHS also has proprietary integration technology that includes a wide range of payload systems including multispectral, thermal imaging cameras, LIDAR (Laser Imaging Detection and Ranging) solutions for high optical zoom and electro-optical maps . Located in the Wichita, Kansas area, the company is an advanced technology and services company providing unmanned aerial systems and solutions to the commercial, defense, national security and public sectors. With a deep understanding of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements that drive the development and certification of UAS systems and payloads, it provides training, payload options integration, emergency services, aerial mapping, and 3D modeling.
Spanish UAV navigation has been developing innovative flight control solutions for unmanned aerial vehicles since 2004. It offers a wide range of solutions for high-performance remote-controlled aircraft systems, target aircraft, mini-UAVs and helicopters. To provide the most appropriate inertial navigation and flight control solutions, autopilots are classified based on two factors: reliability and endurance. They plan to launch the FH-900 next summer.
