Our Reverse Design Process took safety very seriously. Apart from positively avoiding harm and managing risk, we knew that it was little good having the highest performing UAS unless we could claim it was also the safest drone on the market.
Our operating procedures naturally cover safe planning, operation and management of our UAS systems. But our UAVs also have unmatched safety features built into their design to reduce risks to operators, bystanders, payload equipment and land-based assets.
The Altus UAVs have been design and manufactured under strict quality controls to ensure robust and safe operation. And to achieve such a consummate stable aerial reconnaissance platform capable of recording unmatched high fidelity data the Altus drones typically operate well within their weather tolerances.
However, much of the regulated use of UAVs is naturally concerned about safety and risk management. As an industry we recognise that we must go beyond normal standards and ensure our aircraft have mitigated every conceivable risk. So not only are the Altus Unmanned Aerial Systems designed and built robust but they also can carry triple redundancy UAS safety features.
An Altus UAS can be equipped with 3 safety systems including a low-altitude ballistic parachute.
Independent motor control to maintain stable flight in case of failure or emergency.
True redundancy in the air from a majority-rules voting system for uninterrupted control.
Our patented ballistic chute is a final fail safe measure minimising harm from all-out operational failure.
