IOPES - 2020 to 2022

IOPES – 2020 to 2022

IOPES aims at strengthening the preparedness of civil protection and emergency teams (CPET) involved in disaster-related operations. The targets are (1) to provide continuous, time-tagged information about the location of CPETs, no matter whether they are located indoors or outdoors, (2) integrating such information as a new feature of an already operational emergency management system, (3) relying in cartography, either existing or produced by means of fast mapping techniques and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) ...

EXO C2-L - 2019

EXO C2-L – 2019

In May 2019 we received from our sister company Exodronics the order to develop a small fixed wing drone that gathered the best performances possible with the current state of the art. We decided to use for the first time a Li Ion battery and a very efficient airframe and propulsion system to maximize system endurance. The EXO C2-L has been designed to be operated fully autonomous from take-off to landing. It also integrates the ...
