ARACE GRIFFIN

2 hours flight time with unmatched wind resistance

ready to fly industrial aerial vehicle

THE PLATFORM

ARACE GRIFFIN is a next generation, ready to fly industrial aerial vehicle manufactured in the EU. It can perform vertically takeoff and landing (VTOL) from any 5x5m flat surface. Granting it the ability to be deploy from practically anywhere. For example, the side of the road, middle of a forest, top of a building, truck, boat and so on. Once reached safe altitude the flight mode will transition to horizontal forward flight and the UAV will proceed as a tradition fixed-wing aircraft. It is capable of up to 2 hours flight time.

higher wind resistance

Aerial mapping

The Griffin has higher wind resistance than most other VTOL platforms, can safely take off and land in over 40kph winds at ground level and over 80kph in the air. Carbon and Kevlar reinforced parts ensure robustness and longevity.

Deployment, power and cost

The ARACE GRIFFIN can be deployed very rapidly at any location. Transportation is easy, due to single compact carrycase that can fit in any car. Field assembly is easy and fast. Takes less than 3mins and is 100% tool-less. Everything is plug and play.

No pre-flight calibrations are required.

Power system is 100% electric, so no messing with gasoline mixtures, no fiddling with starter motors, no carburetor tuning for various altitudes, no engine warming requirements before every flight, no expensive engine servicing/overhaul (requiring mechanics).

The ARACE GRIFFIN is also best in class when it comes to noise during flight. Typically, inaudible at above 180m over ground level.

100% autonomously

Autonomy

ARACE GRIFFIN can operate 100% autonomously, from takeoff to landing. Missions can be planned and executed with the help of intuitive command and control application. Where to fly, what to do when it arrives there (take photo or record video, track/follow a target, etc.), when to return.

highly customizable, based on the user’s requirements

Versatility

The ARACE GRIFFIN is highly customizable, based on the user’s requirements.

For civil security, surveillance, and SAR applications, it can be equipped with various state of the art single or dual sensor payload. Long range, optical zooming daylight cameras. As well as thermal cameras.

For aerial mapping projects, there are numerous options for high-res RGB camera and multi-spectral camera. Which can be mounted at the same time on the platform.

No runway or complicated/heavy bungee system is needed.

cutting edge technology

Redundancy and safety

The ARACE GRIFFIN houses cutting edge technology and multiple redundancy systems for safe operation:

can cover up to 120km

Range and security

The Griffin can cover up to 120km in a single flight. Can be equipped with AES encrypted datalink for telemetry/control/live video with up to 40km range.

Quality and track record

The GRIFFIN has a proven track record globally. Multiple units are operating globally, in almost every continent. Unlike most hobby and standard commercial offerings, some of our units are operated literally daily shifts, by our customers. That is 8hours a day…. everyday! Only landing to swap the batteries (2mins.). That is why we must make them industrial grade.
