The RQ-84Z AreoHawk has been designed expressly for the optimal acquisition of aerial imaging. With the benefit of many years of both military and commercial UAV operation and much investment in Research and Development, we have settled on a system design that satisfies requirements. Conceived to be a rugged, easy to operate system, our emphasis is placed on the quality of the product, where the UAV is simply the acquisition tool. As such, the AreoHawk system is market driven, and operates under the business imperatives to save clients and operators both time and money.
The aircraft is readily transportable, quick to be assembled and easily and safely hand launched. No heavy, failure-prone or complicated launcher is required. The glider-style shape of the AreoHawk and its overpowered nature allow it to comfortably climb to safe operating altitude post takeoff in even the most adverse conditions.
Designed using unique fluid dynamics the fuselage gives both volume and extremely good aircraft stability. This allows for high precision camera and lens packages and highly efficient imaging runs. The modular nature of the payloads allows for quick sensor interchange and easy upgrade as better technology becomes available.A history with skid landings has firmly taught us that parachute recovery is the best option for commercial UAV operations. Customers cannot be expected to factor in launch and recovery criteria for you and the real world is full of obstacles and rough surfaces. In addition to landing safely and with minimal impact under parachute, the AreoHawk autopilot will also recover consistently to a preselected point. The system constantly assesses windspeed and direction to compute the optimal release point, thereby drifting down to your desired location.
