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.

  • 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

  • 10.5 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 3.0 lbs

  • Water and particulate resistant for operations in any weather or environment

  • Carbon fiber, machined aluminum, steel and polycarbonate components
