GT20 is a commercial UAS unlike any other in today’s drone industry. It has been designed and built from its initial concept to operate fully automated missions, beyond visual line of sight in all weather conditions. Gyrotrak takes-off vertically like a helicopter then transitions into highly energy-efficient forward flight in gyrocopter mode with the main rotor decoupled from the drive motor. As a result, Gyrotrak can take off, hover and land vertically as often as needed and can fly at speeds from 0 (hovering) to 150 km/h. Its all-electric flight time is up to 2.5h depending on payload, environment and mission profile.
High-Performance Drone built for transportation, inspections and surveillance
With its BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) capability and an uninterrupted electric flight time of up to 2.5 hours, GT20 is the perfect tool for heavy mission payloads of up to 6.5kg allowing quick delivery of goods or critical spare parts to where they are needed – safe and weather independent. It is also used for extensive horizontal infrastructure inspection like pipelines, power lines, wind farms, perimeter security or large solar panel fields.
High level of operational readiness
GT20 is rated to IP65 and can operate safely in strong wind up to 10 Bft (55knots/100 km/h) and heavy rain within a temperature range of -15° C to +40°C. Maintenance is easy and straightforward due to the fully electric drive and no complicated tail rotor system, which results in fewer mechanical parts – this also contributes to lower operational costs.
Safety by design
The aircraft is produced in Europe to aviation class standard. GT20’s ability to autorotate and its glide ratio of 10:1 means that it can still fly to a designated emergency site and land safely, even if all drive systems fail. The DO-178/ED-12 and DO-254 certified Autopilot is operational proven, reliable and easy to use. The hybrid concept of the GT20 unites low energy consumption and the outstandingly safe flight characteristics of a Gyrocopter, with the VTOL abilities of a helicopter, giving it not only long flight times and high flight security but also the ability to hover, take-off and land vertically.
Tailored to your needs
GT20 being modular is extremely versatile and can be fully customized to the operator’s requirements. With a payload of up to 6.5 kg, GT20 can carry a wide selection of mission loads. Tell us your application and we will configure the system to your requirements from a selection of Zoom, Infrared, night vision or EO/IR cameras combined with radar, ADS-B, FLARM or other traffic management systems. Also the payload bay can be tailored to your specific needs. You can even define the color and the logos you want to see on your UAS or UAS fleet.
