Search and rescue in extreme conditions today is an area undeveloped for unmanned aviation. There are many reasons for this, but the main issue is the set of requirements that experts impose to the aircraft itself and specifically to its aerodynamic qualities.
A UAV must be able to operate in two modes simultaneously: horizontal flight (i.e., reminiscent to an airplane) and vertical flight (i.e., comparable to either an helicopter or a quadcopter) – each with the capability of hovering over the target. Next, the altitude ceiling of such aircrafts is considered critical; that is, it should go no higher than 10,000 meters. In addition, the UAV must remain stable in conditions of large-scale turbulence (e.g., amidst strong anabatic and fall winds) and should also be rendered capable of operating in the presence of static electricity. Our design is the first one within the UAV market to date, meets almost all set requirements, and even has a development reserve that is considered several years ahead by some parameters.
