ScanLift Orbit

The ScanLift Orbit is a modular octocopter UAS with a hybrid-electric powertrain based around an electronic fuel injected generator that can be started with a single button press. Designed for extended endurance and range, and tested in some of the world's most challenging environments, it is ideal for a wide variety of military and government applications such as ISR and high-accuracy mapping and aerial data collection.

The system's design features easily interchangeable arms, allowing rapid field replacement of damaged struts or motors. Payloads can also be rapidly swapped thanks to a quick connect mount system with built-in vibrational dampening. The highly secure system ensures that no data leaves the localized area.

The BVLOS-ready ScanLift Orbit is equipped with a cutting-edge Jupiter flight controller and is capable of fully autonomous operations. It can be provided with a wide range of optional capabilities including ADS-B, an FPV camera, a radar altimeter, RTK GNSS, and a parachute system.
