By GeoConnexion - 14th January 2021 - 12:12

UAVOS has started testing its converted UVH-500 delivery unmanned aerial system (UAS). Designed to compete in an advanced long distance and intercity transportation segment of the UAV delivery market, long - range heavy - lift UVH-500 UAS is based on the piloted CH7 helicopter platform. The trial involves testing of the air basic aircraft systems, emergency operating modes including autorotation landing, flights with a cargo container weighing up to 287 lb (130 kg). Enhancing the unmanned helicopter with UAVOS’s autopilot gives additional features and advantages to the existing options: automatic take-off and landing, remote Ground Controls network capability, autorotation landing capability and high efficiency flight control, based on TECS (Total Energy Control System). The aircraft is also equipped with Beyond Line-of-Sight (BLOS) data link system for over-the-horizon operations.
