The Topcon Falcon 8 from Ascending Technologies is a rotary-wing UAS designed for inspection and monitoring or survey and mapping applications, depending on which camera is installed. Rotary-wing UASâ€™s are best applied to smaller scale projects and those for which flexibility for take-off and landing or oblique perspective is required. The Falcon 8 offers the flexibility to get into small spaces and compromising situations often presented in inspection and monitoring applications. Due to its best-in-class sensors, active vibration damping and actively compensating camera mount, the Falcon 8 is well suited for inspection projects.
The AscTec Falcon 8 with AscTec Trinity technology is the most advanced multi-copter for professional aerial imaging.Â The inertial guidance system relies on a well-proven and tested multirotor flight system for aerial imaging, industrial inspection, surveying, mapping and monitoring.
The AscTec Falcon 8 went into production in 2009 and is since used globally for professional applications. This octocopter offers unprecedented precision and safety with the reliable AscTec High-Performance GPS and the new control unit AscTec Trinity. It weighs in at a mere, world-class 2.3 kilograms of take-off weight and works with maximum efficiency in the air â€“ on- & offshore, even in challenging conditions
Maximum safety is guaranteed by the up to 3 times redundant flight control electronics and flight components.
