Vertical Technologies, the producer of the DeltaQuad Pro VTOL UAV sequence, has launched their new DeltaQuad Controller. A hand-held built-in distant management with spectacular options.
Up to 50KM HD video vary
Using the most recent improvements in Device-to-Device (D2D) communication, and sensible bandwidth administration, the controller can obtain as much as 50KM transmission vary. Live video has now been built-in not just for the surveillance fashions, but additionally for the mapping and inspection fashions with a dwell feed of the principle digicam in addition to the FPV nostril digicam.
Automatic Object Following
Automatic Object Following, in distinction to object monitoring, is the flexibility for the UAV to autonomously observe an object that’s being tracked by the digicam. With the discharge of the brand new controller, the DeltaQuad Pro #VIEW surveillance mannequin introduces Automatic Object Following. This marks the primary time a VTOL fixed-wing surveillance UAV is able to autonomously following a automotive, human and even one other UAV. Using the touch-screen enabled DeltaQuad Controller, the pilot can faucet on any object of curiosity and activate the next change. The DeltaQuad Pro will autonomously observe the article of curiosity till the pilot disengages the article following mode.
Combining lengthy vary radio with cell web and command middle connectivity

The controller comes geared up with VPN secured cell web connectivity, by way of which it could transmit telemetry, HD Video and even handbook management enter from the pilot. It permits instantaneous switching between a connection primarily based on radio or cell web. This provides each redundancy, limitless vary, and distant sharing of video & management for bigger screens or command middle integration.
Simple handbook management
The controller supplies intuitive handbook management in each fixed-wing and hover flight modes. This not solely facilitates precision touchdown, but additionally permits the pilot to regulate the UAV immediately at lengthy vary. The built-in FPV digicam system supplies situational consciousness whereas the clever avionics retains the UAV secure and at altitude when there isn’t any management enter.
This expertise has implications throughout industries. For many organizations within the safety sector it’s now potential to afford expertise with high-end options like automated object monitoring & following. This function has the potential to vary how safety companies function, particularly while you mix this with options like thermal imaginative and prescient.
In different industries the DeltaQuad Controller additionally supplies significant options. For instance for mapping professionals it’s not essential to carry out a number of take a look at flights as a result of they’ll get instantaneous HD video suggestions concerning the high quality of their mapping information together with situational consciousness by way of the FPV nostril digicam when flying past visible line of sight.
These are simply two examples; in upcoming months and years it will likely be thrilling to learn the way this expertise is being utilized.
“We take heed to our clients, and attempt to stay on the fore-front of technological innovation. The demand for extra management, extra vary, and extra clever autonomy got here collectively on this groundbreaking expertise. We are proud to be the primary VTOL UAV supplier that gives dwell video mapping, automated object following, full LTE integration, and UAV video & management sharing with command facilities. All mixed in a easy to make use of and reasonably priced product”
