PD-1 Unmanned Aerial System is ready to fly solution that comes standard equipped with gas-powered fixed-wing UAV, EO/IR camera system, data links and ground control station and now a VTOL module which gives you even more freedom in your missions. PD-1 can stay in the air for up to 10 hours with 8 kg payload and well-suited for surveillance, aerial photography, agriculture, search and rescue and public safety applications.

The Detail

PD-1 airframe has modular design, this means that you can install any payload, that physically fits the UAV, easily replace any parts and do any kind of customizations. Special payload area is big enough to fit dual sensor gimbal and photo camera or any other similar equipment.

PD-1 UAS comes equipped with an autopilot. It is ready to fly out of the box and well tuned for any mission. Autopilot and GCS software allows to program flight route, do specific actions (e.g. take photos at certain point), do automatic runway take-off and landing, automatic launch from pneumatic catapult, parachute recovery and much more. All information from the PD-1 UAV (e.g. fuel level, engine temp, engine RPM, etc.) comes to GCS in real-time. PD-1 can also perform fully autonomous flights.

PD-1 UAV can carry wide range of different payloads. Standard equipment includes USG-212 EO/IR gimbal or USG-211 EO gimbal. Both camera gimbals features 30x optical zoom, digital video stabilization and target tracking. Furthermore, there is still enough space in payload area to carry secondary payload such as high resolution photo camera, SAR radar, radio repeater, etc.

PD-1 UAS comes equipped with high resolution photo camera and software that allows to process and analyze photos. Photo camera can take pictures with resolution up to 10 pixels/cm while drone is flying on the altitude of 1000 meters. Our software packed with great features, such as ability to compare photos with the flight log file, which allows to find coordinates of the targeted object on the photo, mark up and specify objects of interest, see where the UAV was at the moment when photo was taken and generate standard reports. This solution cuts down overall time needed to analyze aerial photography materials and get most out of it.

PD-1 Unmanned Aerial Systems are currently on service in Ukrainian Armed Forces. Our solution has received positive feedback from Ukrainian Army officers, drone operators and intelligence agents. PD-1 comes equipped with anti-jam capabilities, allowing it to be operated without GNSS signal or even when it faces GPS spoofing or control signals interception attempts.
