Vertical Technologies recently introduced the DeltaQuad Pro #INSPECT, a vertical take-off and landing drone (VTOL) designed for utilities, wildlife and disaster inspections.
The unmanned aircraft system (UAS) comes with a downward facing camera sensor that records video with embedded GPS coordinates, according to a news release. It is designed to carry the Flir Duo Pro R Dual Thermal & RGB sensor, or the MapIR Survey3 RGB sensor.
The drone is capable of fully autonomous flight along a planned path and is easy to control. It can be deployed for powerline inspection, pipeline monitoring, vegetation control, wildlife monitoring, disaster area reconnaissance, and rail and road monitoring.
