Ascent AeroSystems and Autonodyne have collaborated to create the next generation of comprehensive autonomous drone solutions. The partnership will usher in a new era of autonomous functionality for mission-critical UAVs.
Ascent AeroSystems’ Spirit coaxial Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) offers the most versatile and durable system in its class for mission-critical operations. Combined with a fully modular, plug-and-play payload design, the Spirit’s open architecture design allows operators to easily add or upgrade software to unlock entirely new operating capabilities without the need to design or develop a new aircraft.
Easily added to the Spirit for enhanced autonomous capability, Autonodyne’s software solution provides unmatched capability that allows the Spirit to perform autonomous tasks either individually, or as a team with multiple vehicles, all from a single operator and control station.
“Autonodyne brings next-generation autonomy to the small UAS domain,” said Steve Jacobson, Chief Executive Officer at Autonodyne, “The addition of Autonodyne’s software package with the Spirit airframe from Ascent AeroSystems unlocks new possibilities for tactical control of one or more vehicles across a wide spectrum of use cases and customers.”
