AIR6 SYSTEMS | AIRBORNE ROBOTICS is a leading MANUFACTURER of professional drones with offices in the UK, in Germany and in Austria (development & manufacturing). Our high performance systems are sold worldwide and used for manual and automated flights mounted with sensors for:
- Agriculture and forestry;
- Measuring, mapping, surveying and mining;
- Inspection and documentation of buildings, construction sites, critical infrastructure and power assets;
- Surveillance and search & rescue (SAR);
- Photography, film and movies;
- Industrial applications & automation; and
IMPACT & MEANINGFUL RESULTS
We manufacture probably the greenest means of payload transportation in the world. Our drones are equipped with the newest generation of efficient batteries, similar to electric cars, with enhanced duration and extended charging cycles (up to 1,000x). We supply companies that strive to run their operations responsibly – sustainable & energy efficient, workflow-optimized and FUTURE ORIENTED. Our customers fly drones not to congest the airspace but to conduct meaningful work with meaningful sensors.
What impact does your business make? Drones are only a small part of it but a great start.
EYE IN THE SKY
Enhance your ground-based workflows and procedures through aerial information for inspection, analysis and documentation. Collect meaningful data with professional sensors. In order to fully exploit the potential of aerial imagery for site overview, zone mapping, 3D photogrammetry or inspection of critical assets mount the highest quality camera you can afford. Increasing the resolution of an image decreases its ground sampling distance (GSD) and thereby increases the accuracy of the map or the 3D model. We recommend ordering a 24.3-megapixel camera or higher for drone mapping and surveys. Thermal inspection of buildings, power lines, pipelines, infrastructure or other critical assets is only meaningful with highest quality cameras.
TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION
Based on long-term experience in manufacturing professional drones we have optimized manufacturing processes and results to arrive where we stand today. Our AIR8 drone is the ultimate technology bundle and the “power package” in the airspace reserved for UAV traffic: Laserscanning / LiDAR images are made accessible – environmentally & cost efficient – and can be performed for small and large projects. Multiple sensors can be mounted and deployed at one and the same flight.
Our customers win tenders and mandates because they can convince through our state-of-the-art UAV equipment, in particular through:
- REDUNDANCY (enhanced fail-safety from two electronic circuits; essential for Operating Safety Case)
- PERFORMANCE (payload, flight time, power reserve, stability)
- OPEN PLATFORM (ability to mount any sensor or payload)
- CUSTOMIZATIONS (systems tailored to your specifications)
Manufactured in Austria, our systems are compliant with the highest technical & safety standards and legal requirements. For more information on the operation of drones in Austria and “the most important details regarding the technical certification and the operation of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (in particular of Class 1 according to Luftfahrtgesetz)” please refer to Austro Control Drones (EN) or Austro Control Drohnen (DE).
While our core business is designing & manufacturing of drones we provide our customers with end-to-end turnkey UAV solutions for each professional application – comprising of our UAV hardware, integrated sensors or customizations as well as operating, flight planning and post-processing software and our training & support. According to our open platform principle customers can choose the best possible sensors or software on the market which we then integrate optimized into the turnkey system.
Payload capacity means efficiency and flexibility. With multiple sensors mounted at the same time you can reduce your repeat flights and can capture essential information at all time. We recommend purchasing a drone able to carry 1.5 kg or higher for agriculture, inspection, mapping & surveys as well as search & rescue. For LiDAR applications or multiple sensor requirements during your missions we recommend a drone with at least 7 kg payload capacity and 40 minutes flight time. This gives you enough power and safety reserves.
TRAINING & LICENSES
Flying professional drones means being part of the general airspace with its regulations and requirements. This requires from the drone pilot specific education, preparation and skills. Among our AIR6 SYSTEMS | AIRBORNE ROBOTICS team are certified examiners for the UAV / UAS pilot license in Germany (“Kenntnisnachweis Steuerer UAV nach §21a Absatz 4 Satz 3 Nr. 2 LuftVO”). Our customers receive practical, technical and theoretical training at the purchase of one of our drones. You can also book the exam for the German UAV / UAS pilot license with one of our examiners – please contact us for more information. For the world-wide registration of our drones we support our customers with respective approval documentation.
In the UK, AIRBORNE ROBOTICS has been granted Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) – CAA ID 11356 – from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
With regards to specific UAV applications and product innovations we keep our customers and our AIRBORNE community up to date via regular and free WEBINARS as well as professional workshops from time to time. For more information please contact us directly.
