Pelican

UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE

Pelican UAV is a mid-sized four-rotor aerial platform for research and development. The open, lightweight tower structure allows users to mount diverse payloads including a powerful on board i-7 computer, and offers easy access to electronics. Asctec Autopilot provides high level command functions as well as access to low level control and telemetry data.  Powerful and rugged, Pelican is easily configured for laboratory and outdoor experimentation.

Features

GPS TRACKING

Pelican UAV can be used for outdoor testing. It comes fully loaded with GPS-based autonomous waypoint tracking to calculate time and distance for flight patterns and deliver accurate results.

POWERFUL BATTERY

The Pelican UAV’s powerful battery provides up to 20 minutes of flight time through indoor and outdoor environments. The large battery is well suited to withstand wind and high-power fans.

CARBON FIBER COMPOSITE

With a carbon fiber composite frame, Pelican UAV is durable, reliable and safe. The lightweight structure allows for a higher payload, enabling onboard computing.

SAFETY GUARD

Pelican UAV comes with a built-in safety guard to protect the rotors and the researchers who are controlling the unit. Outdoor testing time will be much more efficient since this UAV is resilient to run-ins with walls and the ground.

MASTERMIND ON-BOARD COMPUTER

With a Mastermind on-board computer, Pelican UAV offers high computational power and extensibility. Experience new heights in your research with capabilities in SLAM and visual odometry.
