SwissDrones Launches in Asia Pacific Region

Outperforming manned helicopters in business and mission-critical operations,

SwissDrones’ unmanned, heavy-lift, twin-rotor helicopters are uniquely positioned for

Australia and Asia Pacific.

Zurich, Switzerland and Perth, Australia – 30 June 2021 – From preventing wildfires to

inspecting energy strains and conducting emergency response missions, Australia and the

Asia Pacific Region have lengthy trusted the usage of manned rotorcraft. However,

as a result of many of those missions require rotorcraft to function over lengthy distances, at

night time, throughout all climate circumstances, in distant areas, and with restricted to no

infrastructure, these operations are inherently harmful.

But now there’s the SDO 50 V2 – a safer, cheaper, and cleaner means of conducting

vital missions.

Developed by SwissDrones, a worldwide producer of long-range unmanned helicopter

methods, the SDO 50 V2 is a multipurpose, Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL),

unmanned helicopter system that may be operated past visible line of sight.

Its distinctive design options present superior payload capability (45 kg/99 lbs, together with

gasoline), long-endurance (3+ hours), steady flight patterns, the flexibility to hold single or

a number of high-quality sensors, and a excessive diploma of security options. An built-in

autopilot system allows autonomous take-off and touchdown procedures in addition to

autonomous flight patterns.

“Our unmanned aerial options have been made for long-range missions in antagonistic climate

circumstances, day and night time, at excessive altitude, and a big spectrum of temperatures – all

with none threat to the crew,” mentioned Ulrich Amberg, CEO of SwissDrones.

The SDO 50 V2 makes use of the Flettner system of intermeshing twin rotors handing over reverse

instructions. Each rotor mast is mounted at a slight angle to the opposite to permit the blades

to intermesh with out colliding. The distinctive design offers a superior payload capability,

extended endurance, and steady flight patterns. This association additionally permits the

helicopter to operate and not using a tail rotor, which saves further energy and permits a

considerably greater payload to weight ratio.

Well Suited for the APAC Region

Entering the Australian and Asia Pacific markets, the SDO 50 V2 is obtainable by means of

Éire Aviation. At the forefront of aviation expertise excellence within the Asia Pacific

area, Éire Aviation has an extended historical past within the manned aviation sector. The firm

makes a speciality of opening new markets to new applied sciences, not solely by means of gross sales however with

a full vary of providers, together with auditing, strategic advisory and operations

“Not solely are the SDO 50 V2’s options and capabilities ideally suited to the distinctive

calls for of Australia and the Asia Pacific area, nevertheless it additionally gives the identical sensor

payload efficiency as a manned helicopter with out the inherent limitations,” mentioned

Ronnie Fahy, CEO of Éire Aviation. “The plane is the right payload, security,

technological and efficiency unit for the geography and use circumstances required within the

APAC area.”

Key Benefits

Unlike manned missions, the SDO 50 V2 can function over lengthy distances with out the

want for infrastructure and with solely minimal floor assist. In reality, the plane will be

simply transported to the work location through van, from which two crew members can

deploy it in lower than quarter-hour and with little to no infrastructure required.

Furthermore, because the SDO-50 V2 can function on numerous completely different gasoline varieties, gasoline

planning isn’t as restrictive a requirement as with conventional rotorcraft varieties. This can

remove gasoline diversion necessities. It additionally leads to 90%+ much less CO2 emissions than

its manned counterparts – all whereas providing comparable endurance and sensor payload

capacities however at only a fraction of the associated fee.

Another key differentiator is that the SDO 50 V2 can safely function at night time, in antagonistic

climate circumstances, and in different eventualities deemed too harmful for manned


“When working with SwissDrones you’ve got a safer and cleaner different to conventional

manned rotorcraft missions,” mentioned Luca Santini, Head of Sales of SwissDrones. “We see

this as being an actual game-changer for firefighting, emergency providers, oil and fuel,

maritime patrol, and infrastructure inspection missions taking place in Australia and

all through the Asia Pacific area.”

Each SDO 50 V2 comes backed by SwissDrones’ industry-leading coaching, service and

assist program. To study extra in regards to the SwissDrones SDO 50 V2, contact Éire
