Quantum-Systems, a leading manufacturer of professional long-range UAVs for the civilian market, announced the Trinity UAV at the InterGeo 2017 expo in Berlin. The Trinity is Quantum’s second UAV after the Tron, which was released in March 2017. The Trinity is a VTOL fixed-wing hybrid UAV that employs a unique three-motor design to take-off vertically, without runways or special equipment. After takeoff, only one motor is used for efficient high-speed flight, with endurance up to 60 minutes and total range exceeding 70 kilometres (43.5 miles). The Trinity combines Quantum-Systems custom onboard flight controller and QBase flight planning software with a flexible payload bay for the best ease-of-use, flexibility and area coverage in a commercial product.
“The Trinity can cover an area up to eight times larger than our competitors in this price range,” said Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems. “The included visual and multispectral cameras and intuitive one-button launch system make the package ready to fly and easy to use without special training or extra equipment.” He also mentioned that this second UAV rounds-out Quantum’s product offerings: “ The Trinity is perfect for customers who need a turnkey imaging solution that’s globally exportable, while the Tron carries larger, custom payloads for up to 120 minutes of flight on a single charge. Quantum-Systems now has a complete product line that will serve the needs of professional users from single operators to large enterprise customers.”
