US: Swiss-based UAV pioneer Aeroscout has announced that it will be displaying its Scout B-330 UAV Helicopter at the Commercial UAV Show in Las Vegas, this October. The high-performance UAV was introduced at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL in Dallas, Texas, early in this month.
Built with a high payload capacity of up to 50 kg (110 lbs), the Scout B-330 UAV Helicopter has a flight endurance of at least three hours and the capability of flying at very high altitudes, i.e. up to 3,000m above sea level in a typical mission scenario.
This includes a full autonomous take-off sequence, a mission flight at variable speed, and a landing sequence. The beautiful Scout B-330 is specifically designed for LiDAR-based powerline mapping missions. It sets a new benchmark in the long endurance UAV class with its combination of flexibility, world-renowned Swiss quality, and very competitive pricing.
“After one year of intense development, we are very excited to introduce our new Scout UAV system to the public. The reactions here at AUVSI are extremely positive and encouraging, we are very motivated for the serial production out of the system” said Dr. Christoph Eck, Aeroscout founder and CEO.
The Scout B-330 pairs perfectly with RIEGL airborne and unmanned LiDAR sensors, such as the RIEGL VP-1 Helicopter Pod, the RIEGL VUX-1UAV lightweight UAV laser scanner, or the RIEGL VUX-1LR lightweight, long range airborne laser scanner.
