UAV / UAS
and truly unique
The Skeldar V-150 is a fully automated Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) designed to support tactical operations for surveillance, emergency response, homeland security and defence.
The two payload bays offer great flexibility to accommodate multiple combinations of sensors ensuring mission objectives are achieved. The real-time flight and mission management system is particularly easy to use in all operating conditions and supports safe operations.
The modular design of the V-150 enables a high degree of maintainability and minimum turn-around times during operations.

New Applications for UAVs: Cargo Transportation
Cargo transportation is as old as time. Throughout the centuries we have seen a wide range of freight transportation come and go, ranging from horse-drawn wagons to aeroplanes and helicopters. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are increasing in popularity as organisations realise the benefits they can bring, from the use of heavy fuels – like in our Skeldar V-150 – to reduced logistical footprints and ease of maintenance. New applications for UAVs are consistently coming to the fore, such as the transport of freight to destinations including islands, offshore oilrigs, mountain resorts, remote construction sites and other such smaller locations.
Medical Supply to Frontlines
Cargo transportation is becoming crucial in the supply of medical goods. For this industry, fast and reliable transportation of medical supplies can be the difference between life and death, especially in rural areas. Further innovations in this area such as ship-to-shore unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) deliveries are being investigated, whereby medical supplies and water are delivered to those that require them during disaster situations. In this scenario, the UAV can be used to carry medical samples for emergency testing, flying them between an onshore medical relief camp and a test facility on a ship. With Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) such as our V-150, it is possible to land vertically unlike fixed wing systems, providing the added advantage of not only an efficient landing, but a reduced logistical footprint which also saves space.
The Energy Sector is Taking Off
The energy sector is a prime example of why unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) are increasing in use. In highly complex domains such as the oil and gas industry, asset management, environmental compliance and safety must all be guaranteed. The investment in oil pipeline networks that span countries and continents creates a need for activities such as oil and gas exploration and inspection of pipelines. Traditionally, this has been completed by deploying teams of personnel. Today, oil and gas organisations are beginning to deploy UAVs as they move towards non-conventional sources and more challenging environments. Using UAVs such as the Skeldar V-150 means it is possible to access these areas with relative ease but without exposing crew to the associated hazards. Using UAVs also means data can be shared in real-time to crews in another location, avoiding delays between data recording and analysis that occur in manned operations.
