In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew speaks with Tim Matthews of Autel about the company’s DragonFish commercial unmanned aircraft system (UAS). At the Commercial UAV Expo 2019 in Las Vegas, the DragonFish completed its maiden flight in the United States, operating autonomously. A Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) platform, the DragonFish launches and recovers like a conventional multirotor. However, once airborne, it transitions to fixed-wing flight to achieve a flight time of over 100 minutes. The DragonFish has been developed for a wide array of use cases, including commercial and industrial operations, as well as persistent public safety surveillance. Capable of carrying a variety of payloads in an interchangeable sensor mount, the DragonFish can deliver visible light video, thermal imaging and potentially custom payloads including LiDAR.
