The TARSIS 75 unmanned, fixed-wing aerial platform from AERTEC Solutions, the international engineering and consulting firm specialising in aerospace and defence systems, is continuing its testing campaign at the National Institute for Aerospace Technology’s (INTA) El Arenosillo Testing Centre (CEDEA) in Huelva.
The operations of this past week marked a new milestone thanks to the 100-km distance reached by the TARSIS 75, the light, high-tech tactical aeroplane designed by the Spanish company for observation and surveillance applications. This record, operating from the coast, involved climbing to an altitude of 3,000 metres after taking off from sea level. It was not possible to exceed the 100-km distance as this was practically at the limit of the segregated airspace, though one of its features is a radio communication range exceeding 150 kilometres.
During its testing campaign at INTA, a few weeks ago the TARSIS 75 also successfully executed a complete, automatic take-off and landing (ATOL) operation at the beach of Mazagón (Huelva), thus expanding its capabilities on unconventional runways.
The TARSIS 75 and TARSIS 25 unmanned aerial platforms are one of AERTEC’s most innovative projects. The company develops the entire life cycle for these RPAS, from design and creation to assembly.
