Yuneec International, a world leader in electric aviation, releases updates on the H520 UAV. The system, which launched back in January, is officially available, according to the companies latest release. Utilizing Yuneec’s proven six-rotor platform, it’s Yuneec’s first platform designed for commercial use.
The system offers reliable and stable flight, a variety of payload options, and an integrated ground controller. It incorporates enterprise-grade cameras and mission planning software, ideal for use in public safety, construction, inspection, video production, and more.
“Our team of engineers and product managers have conducted extensive field testing to refine the H520 software and create a best-in-class commercial-grade UAV,” said Dr. Michael Jiang, CEO of Yuneec International. “We’re confident operators will discover the H520 is a versatile tool for a variety of enterprise applications thanks to its suite of dependable, reliable and advanced features including DataPilot™, Yuneec’s integrated mission planning software.”
Yuneec H520 Highlights:
The H520 modular design is compatible with Yuneec’s E90, E50, and CGOET cameras. All camera payloads are interchangeable and hot-swap capable, offering time-saving convenience for the commercial operator.
The E50 camera is a medium focal length, high-resolution camera, perfect for inspections and broadcast. It provides up-close visuals while keeping the airframe a safe distance from the asset.
The E90 is a wide-angle, high-resolution camera which is ideal for applications that require high-quality photos and video. It utilizes a 20-megapixel one-inch Sony Exmor sensor and the latest Ambarella H2 high-speed image-processing chip. These specs make it ideal for building information modeling, 2D/3D mapping as well as film production.
The CGOET dual thermal-RGB camera is specifically designed for public safety, search and rescue, and solar inspection applications. It’s the industry’s first combination of thermal and residual light camera with the integrated gimbal. The E90 and E50 cameras also include adapter rings which allow mounting of standard, high-performance third-party filters.
Yuneec DataPilot™ is a complete solution for planning survey and waypoint-based UAV flight. DataPilot™, which is tightly coupled to the PX4 flight control architecture, was developed in conjunction with Lorenz Meier, head of Advanced R&D, who was recognized as an honoree of MIT Technology Review’s 2017 Innovators Under 35 list.
Software Developer Kit
The H520 software development kit allows third parties to develop value-added applications and services for a variety of commercial uses. The Mobile SDK is a software development kit gives developers both access and control over platforms components.
Christoph Strecha, CEO & Founder of Pix4D, Yuneec software partner and creator of industry leading data imaging applications, claims, “The Yuneec H520 SDK will enable Pix4D to provide software that is more tightly integrated with the UAV flight system and data capture process, resulting in more accurate 3D representation of site maps or aggregate volumetrics.”
YES! Commercial Extended Service Program
The entire line of commercial UAV will be offered with Yuneec’s all-new YES! commercial service program. The program includes four service packages, Bronze, Silver, Gold to Platinum, featuring one or two-year warranty option.
The H520 is available in a variety of configurations with prices ranging from $1,999 to $4,699. For more information, visit Yuneec’s website.
