Inview uses the Inmarsat SwiftBroadband satellite data relay service. For more details, see the presentation at the Bristol conference.
Inview uses the BML autopilot based on the use of a 9 Degree of Freedom Inertial Measurement Unit (XYZ gyro, XYZ magnetometer and XYZ accelerometer) and a GPS receiver.
Extended Flight Time
- fuel efficient four stroke internal combustion engines
- high energy density, aviation grade, gasoline rather than methanol
- a low drag aircraft design
Take-off and Landing on Rough Terrain
The Inview unmanned aircraft has been designed to be able to take off from a rough grass strip, and also to land on a similar rough grass field. This ability enables the Inview:
- to avoid other aircraft at an airfield
- to avoid any airfield related payments
- to perform an emergency landing in a rough grass field without damaging the aircraft
High Quality Images
Three HD cameras with video capability are onboard the Inview aircraft. The cameras have tilt capabilities enabling a large volume to be captured.
The Inview can carry a thermal imager to enable the detection of people at night.
