The PD-2 is a hybrid-powered VTOL with a modular design. Featuring a long-range encrypted datalink, 2 cargo delivery modules, and advanced EO/IR, LiDAR, or other sensors.
The PD-2 can stay up in the air for more than 10 hours [fully loaded UAV including payload & fuel].
The PD-2 UAS is a portable CLASS I [NATO - JAPCC] VTOL fixed-wing solution designed for various missions in a wide geographic range. The plane can endure a distance of +1100km, with a datalink range of +220km. The system is packed with high-end technologies, AES 128/256 encryption, advanced payloads, and anti-jamming technologies. PD-2 UAS is well-suited for military use, border control, surveillance, inspections, aerial photography, agriculture, search and rescue, and public safety applications.
The PD platform is a fully customizable modular solution, capable of operating in a wide range of geographic scenarios and can be operational and in the air within 15 minutes from deployment. The system’s modular, robust, and lightweight airframe, powerful engine unit, and stable communications make it a perfect solution for a long-distance unmanned aerial system.
Choose and integrate any compatible equipment due to the PD-2’s versatility. Gimbals, high-resolution cameras, LiDAR, SAR, IMSI catchers, radio repeaters: the flexibility of the PD platform allows using a wide range of various payloads.
The system can take off and land fully automated without human intervention. The ADS-B transponder lets the UAV determine its position and periodically broadcast it, enabling it to be tracked by the antenna for the ultimate datalink range. A secure AES 128/256 encrypted connection and the dual-datalink system ensure that the UAV will not be jammed.
Its modular design keeps operational costs low and allows for quick assembly between the 3 different configurations, whatever the mission requires.
When the VTOL module is not utilized, the landing gear with an integrated braking system reduces the distance required for a runway landing.
The payload area is big enough to fit a dual-sensor gimbal and photo camera or any type of payload up to 11kg. For commercial applications, the PD-2 has been designed to create advanced LiDAR and photogrammetry solutions.
Modular design allows replacing all airframe parts, payloads, and other onboard equipment. And one more thing: PD-2 can be assembled or converted from the fixed-wing configuration to VTOL within 15 minutes.
