FALCON-V VTOL UAV | PIGEON-V VTOL UAV | Brochures

FALCON UAV series airframes are built robust to withstand punishing applications and demanding flight conditions. Our hollow-molded, composite airframes use fiberglass and carbon fiber. User-friendly & serviceable in the field, modular design means quick re-configuration or component replacement. Engine modules, wings and avionics components can be replaced in minutes. It provides a unique balance of advanced capabilities, operational flexibility and outstanding performance.

With its capability for autonomous flight and a fully redundant flight control system, the FALCON UAV series can fly a programmed mission without operator intervention. It has a Vertical Takeoff and Landing system, eliminating the need for runways or launch and recovery systems. Whether for use at sea or on land, it has been engineered to aviation standards, ensuring reliability on all mission types.

Reliable & Efficient

FALCON UAV is a Gasoline engine powered airframe and electric motor model. Both are designed with reliability, durability, fuel efficiency, and low noise signature in mind. Our off-the-shelf airframes are known for their toughness, flying efficiency, and the ability to be configured for endurance of over 10 hours.

Design & Development

Our in-depth research and development has led to an Unmanned Aerial Vehical (UAV) that is designed not only to the highest specification and build quality, but is also designed to perform in all terrains and environments. Its sleek design belies a tough framework, combining advanced composite materials like carbon fiber and aluminum. These provide high-end performance, coupled with robust, structural strength and a high level of environmental resistance - particularly in maritime environments.

Performance Flexibility

For the total performance flexibility, the FALCON UAV have the ability to complete an entire mission automatically and with zero operator intervention, or it can be reprogrammed at any time when airborne to perform alternative missions or react to task changes.

Programming for an autonomous mission is controlled via a simple point-and-click graphical user interface with payload imagery transmitted to the Ground Control Station (GCS) in real-time. Redundant Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) ensure highly accurate navigation and stability. In the case of loss of link, an automatic Return To Launch (RTL) function is activated.

Command & Control

Easy to use and operate, nothing provides such a good platform as the UAVs for civil aerial uses.

Ground Control Station

The powerful multi-capable system software of the FALCON UAV are intuitively controlled through an easy-to-use operator interface.

Giving operators immediate access to vital data, the ground control workstation displays the position of the UAV as well as status information in real time on a user-friendly, aviation-style instrument panel.

The Ground Control Station allows the operator to control the payload while also having access to mission planning information, video-viewing, recording and frame capture.

The setup of the Ground Control Workstation itself is flexible depending on the user’s needs - so the FALCON UAV can be commanded from a laptop computer or integrated into a larger system; from a static setup (container), to moving (vehicle) to integrated (ship).

 

Antenna

There are a number of antenna options available out to 100 km range.

In Development

TOP Engineering Group strives to ensure that the highly flexible FALCON UAV are maximized for all customer requirements. The extensive Research and Development team at TOP Engineering Group is constantly working to expand its capabilities.

 

FALCON-V   Fixed Wing VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Aircraft
