Update on Commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Services Business

9 Mar 2016

XTEK has lodged an application with CASA for a UAV Operator’s Certificate, to operate the Lynx M fixed wing UAS from Swift Radio Planes and the Qube, quadrotor UAV from AeroVironment Inc.
XTEK intends to fly these UAS, on a commercial basis, as soon as a UAV Operator’s Certificate has been issued.

The following links provide more information on these UAS:

Lynx M with XTatlas™ for Real Time Contextual Video and Fast 2D Mapping

Depending on the client requirements, XTEK will use either the standard camera (see Lynx M brochure - above) or an XTatlas™ capable Go-Pro camera. e.g. If highly accurate mapping is required, with post flight processing, the 24MP Sony camera will be fitted.  If contextual video and / or fast turn-around 2D mapping is required, a Go-Pro camera with XTatlas™ will be fitted.
