SkyEye – Modular UAV Solution

ElevonX UAV’s product strategy is based around the concept of modularity. Our smart modular UAS solution allows our customers to have a competitive edge on the market of UAS services by providing them with a tool that can switch between different types of tasks with minimal changes on the UAV platform – from multispectral mapping to surveillance missions – in a matter of minutes.

Key features:

  • System modularity: one fuselage – multiple UAV configurations.
  • Payload modularity: quickly adapt SkyEye UAV to different mission types (mapping, multispectral imaging, surveillance…).
  • More than 15 possible combinations – complete tailoring to suit Your needs.
  • Composite structure for maximum performance and precision.

Technical Details:

The core of our modular system is the SkyEye payload module, which was designed to house different types of payload (from multispectral cameras to retractable surveillance gimbals). This high-end glass fiber-kevlar composite module’s main features are:

  • Large cargo bay (10 liters of volume, max dimensions 60x18x14 cm).
  • Easy cargo access (top and bottom hatch, bottom hatch 25×16 cm).
  • Integrated cargo rail with predefined fixpoints.
  • Modular propulsion options (gas/electric pusher or electric tractor).
  • Removable fix-points for catapult launch.
  • Optional landing gear (requires smooth take-off and landing surface).
  • Removable nose cone (optional transparent nose cone for forward-looking camera installation).
  • Streamlined design with highly visible livery (optional custom design).
  • Wing integrated avionics and parachute bay – payload bay dedicated for payload only.

ELEVONX SkyEye Sierra VTOL KEY ADVANTAGES are:

  • Take-off and landing are performed in so-called VTOL mode, like a helicopter.
  • VTOL mode is advantageous because it does not need lots of space for take-off and landing.
  • No need for a catapult launcher for take-off. VTOL landing is completely accurate.
  • There is no need for a parachute for landing, and there is no risk of damaging the plane during the landing.
  • SkyEye Sierra VTOL platform is larger and more capable.
  • It can carry up to 3 kg of payload. Range (at Cruise) 320 KM, Endurance (at Cruise) 3 hrs. Electric – 5 hrs. Gas.
  • Motors are waterproof and dust resistant. The motors have a special protecting covering to be pesticide-resistant.
  • ELEVONX SkyEye Sierra VTOL is electric, so it’s quieter than a petrol engine if necessary and upgraded with a petrol engine.
