Ground Control Station (Mobile)

The Mobile Ground Control Station is a completely autonomous flight operations van with its own 100 KW generator, air conditioning and heating system. The M-GCS has three pilot stations and three sensor stations with conference and observation areas. Internet service is provided via satellite dish and aircraft telemetry and control are linked via auto-tracking antennas. Voice communications are provided between ground based and airborne observers as well as FAA personnel and local airport authorities via UHF and VHF radios.

Hummingbird(R) XRP

The Hummingbird XRP is the company's newest Hybrid VTOL product providing flight duration in excess of 6 hours with a payload capacity in excess of 30 pounds. In addition, the aircraft has eight hard points for client payloads with the ability to remotely deploy or retain payloads depending on mission requirements. With a hybrid power system that generates over 10kW, reserve power can be provided to client payloads./p>

Coming in 2019

 

Continuing our discussions through 2019 with prospects and aerospace consultants, the four major issues continuing to face today's VTOL UAV platforms are: 1) Limited flight duration, 2) Limited payload capacity, 3) The lack of redundant propulsion and navigation systems and 4) The absence of deployable payload components. To address these key issues, Reference Technologies has spent the past 6 years designing an innovative solution to address the current limited flight performance of other competitive multi-rotor VTOL solutions.

The Hummingbird XRP is featured in the August/September issue of Unmanned Systems Magazine as the featured article.  The Hummingbird XRP has been upgraded to a 13kW hybrid power system that supports the multi-fuel requirements of government and commercial operators.
