Fixed Wing Drone Solution for Commercial Operations - FIXAR (2022)

Cost-Effective Drone Solutionfor Commercial Operations

The FIXAR 007 is a fully autonomous, VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) fixed-wing drone designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications, such as drone mapping and inspections, aerial imaging, precision agriculture, oil and gas, surveillance and monitoring, and more.

The low-maintenance, easy-to-use fixed-wing drone can be set up in less than five minutes, and it can take off and land vertically with an accuracy field of one meter. The FIXAR 007 UAV for mapping and UAV surveying is an excellent tool for stress-free missions because they do not require any launch catapult or landing pad preparations.

FIXAR Autopilot

The proprietary autopilot software provides a completely autonomous drone flight, including take-off and landing. It is also protected against confidential data breaches.

Single Dronefor Multiple Tasks

FIXAR 007 is a versatile drone that can be customized to provide technology-based solutions in a wide range of industries.

The VTOL drone can be equipped with a variety of sensors and can accommodate multiple payloads at once to accomplish your mission objectives in fewer flights. FIXAR 007 drone features a convenient and flexible design of the payload compartment, which allows for integration with any third-party sensors such as RGB or multispectral cameras, hyperspectral sensors, LiDAR scanners, night vision cameras, and more.

The FIXAR 007 model features a high payload capacity of 2 kg (4.4 lbs), which allows for the installation of various sensors, so you can capture more data in fewer flights. The payload capacity is such that it even allows for a combination of RGB and multispectral camera use, which guarantees results with greater accuracy, precision, and cost-efficiency, all at a much finer resolution over increasingly large spatial scales, particularly when compared to other means of monitoring, such as foot surveys or manned aircrafts.

Every FIXAR 007 outdoor drone is equipped with a BlackBox module, which is an extended feature that allows the system to record complete and detailed information of onboard flight activities and parameters. The drone BlackBox is a valuable and practical back-up system for the collected data by the payload, as the metadata of the mission can be exported using LogExport software with no data loss.

FAQs

How much is a Fixar drone? ›

A Fixar representative tells us that their company's drone has a maximum flight time of up to one hour, a top speed of 72 km/h (45 mph), a payload capacity of 2 kg (4.4 lb), and is capable of fully autonomous flight. Pricing starts at US$20,000.

What are fixed-wing drones mostly used for? ›

This type of drone can be used for mapping, surveying, and military applications. Another reason to use a fixed wing drone is for the ability to carry cargo. Because fixed wing drones use forward momentum to fly, they can carry a heavier load. Because of this, batteries used to power quadcopter drones must be larger.

What is the drawback of a fixed-wing drone? ›

Disadvantages. Manoeuvrability – Fixed-wing drones can only fly forward, so they don't offer the same level of manoeuvrability as multirotor drones. They need space to make large, sweeping turns when they change directions, which can cut down on mapping efficiency.

How far can a fixed-wing drone fly? ›

This aircraft can carry a wide variety of payloads. With large enough motors this aircraft could possibly carry up to 20lbs of payload. With carrying this large amount of payload, it is expected that the range may drop from 62 miles to approximately 20 miles.

Why I suggest a fixed-wing drone for NPO? ›

Increased range – The main advantage of fixed-wing aircraft is their ability to cover great distances on a single battery. Due to their superior engine efficiency, most commercial models can fly for an hour or more and cover around 400 hectares. This makes them ideal for surveying oil pipelines or electricity pylons.

What is the future of drone technology? ›

Transporting Supplies for Humanitarian Work

In future, drones will transport supplies to the remote or inaccessible areas. They will deliver medical supplies and vaccines to remote locations, dangerous places, inaccessible places as well as places affected by war or contagious diseases.

What technologies are used by drones? ›

Drones can be equipped with sensors, including ultrasonic, laser or lidar distance sensors, time-of-flight sensors, chemical sensors, and stabilization and orientation sensors. Visual sensors offer still and video data.

What is the difference between fixed-wing and rotary wing? ›

Fixed-wing drones require a take-off and landing zone and are used in long-distance flights as they typically have longer flight times. On the other hand, rotary drones are used in cases where more maneuverability is required, for example, for inspection of infrastructure. Different drones have different applications.
