Delair-Tech, leader of the French civilian RPAS industry, has won the EU tender to enrich COPERNICUS, the Earth surveillance program of the EU. Until 2019, Delair-Tech will provide its technology to the programme, in order to offer a reactive and a reliable solution in the case of an emergency due to climatic, ecologicial, environmental or natural causes, for the entire Europe.
Delair-Tech expertise to protect people and territories
With Delair-Tech, the EU Commission will equip its COPERNICUS emergency management services with fleets of RPA to complement aircraft and satellites. The program, launched in 2008, aims at gathering, selecting and streamlining data that have been generated by environment observation in order to anticipate, manage and participate to solve natural and technological crisis.
The Delair-Tech RPAS combine flexibility for image production and speed to acquire information all over Europe and provide it to COPERNICUS Emergency Management services in less than 48h. Delair-Tech technology has been developed in Toulouse. It is the perfect complement to satellites when reactivity, capacity to observe in cloudy weather and high resolution is needed.
– DT18, light and easy-to-use RPA has an endurance of 100 km and/or 2 hours. DT18 is the first civilian mini-RPA that has been certified by a Civil Aviation Authority for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations. This capacity to fly with no limits of distance in civilian airspace is necessary when it comes to mapping remote and inaccessible areas or very large surfaces.
– DT-3Bands is a sensor designed by Delair-Tech and dedicated to high resolution imagery (4.3 cm GSD at an altitude of 150 m). The capacity of DT-3bands to send images in real-time is a key for crisis management and emergencies.
