Introducing the future of industrial unmanned aerial vehicles
An all-new, industrial-grade UAV platform designed for harsh environments.
Industrial, public safety and military UAVs operate in difficult settings. Remote locations. Harsh weather. No support infrastructure. Delayed or cancelled flights mean wasted time, higher costs, and increased risks. Ascent’s portable, rugged coaxials are easier to get to where they’re needed and tough enough to handle the harshest environments.
Easily fits in a backpack. No more transport cases.
Collapsible rotor blades
Optional landing gear
Absorbs impacts that would damage conventional multirotors.
Polycarbonate, carbon fiber and machined aluminum
Protected against particulate and moisture ingress
Available MIL-spec 810G features
Introducing the Spirit
A single platform for any enterprise application
Adaptable to any payload, the all-new Spirit provides unmatched versatility:
Top and bottom attach points
Payloads and batteries can be mounted or stacked on either attach point as necessary
Modules lock and unlock with a simple twist
Wide CG range accommodates almost any configuration
11.0 lbs. available for payloads and batteries
The system’s core module contains all of the critical components including the motors, rotor system, flight control actuators, autopilot and primary control receiver. Power and data are distributed throughout the vehicle and to top and bottom attach points via a central spine with common interlock fittings.
Compact and lightweight - core weight of just 2.5 lbs
Sealed against water and particulate matter for operation in any weather
Carbon fiber, machined aluminum, steel and polycarbonate components
