Aircraft

AirSecure strives to be a centre of excellence in the development and manufacturing of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems as a platform for specific applications.

Our aircraft ranges from the small easy to use S2 to the large very long range and robust W32 capable of up to 3 hours’ endurance and live video feeds from up to 100km away.

A very important part of our development is to ensure that our products can cope with the demanding environment of Africa. To this wend we have hardened our airframes, landing gear and ground stations to tolerate wear and use that would normally damage other systems. Only after testing our equipment in the field day after day over hundreds of missions were we able to apply practical, effective measures.

 

Our range of fixed wing long endurance Remotely Piloted Aircraft include the following:

 

 S2 • Light Scout

Designed to be easy to launch and land virtually anywhere, the AirSecure S2 is an ideal short range platform for the owner operator. Robust and quiet it can be flown manually with ease or can take-off, fly a pre-programmed route and land automatically at any open field nearby. Its electric motor is quiet and the batteries have many life cycles.

 

SPECIFICATIONS
Wing Span: 2.0m
Construction: EPO Foam & Carbon Fibre
Propulsion system: Electric Pusher Motor
Operating Empty Weight: 1.3 kg
Maximum Range: 45-60 km
Typical Cruise Speed: 45 km/h
Stall Speed: 30 km/h
Maximum Endurance: 60-90 minutes
Maximum Payload: 2.8 kg
Video & C2 Link Range: Up to 15 km

 

The AirSecure S2 excels in small mapping tasks (for example Geo-Referenced Orthomosaic and NDVI maps) and low altitude inspections over a smaller area including thermal imaging video feed.

 M26 • Versatile Workhorse

The AirSecure M26 has been designed to function as a medium/long range, multi-functional, robust aerial platform and has proven itself during many hours of flight testing and operation. Fully automated take-off and landing makes it simple to operate, while requiring only 100m of runway. Its modular design enables small dimensions for transport while maintaining quick and easy assembly. Its electric motor is quiet and requires very low maintenance with batteries that has many life cycles.

 

SPECIFICATIONS
Wing Span: 2.6 m
Construction: Carbon fibre, glass fibre & balsa wood
Propulsion system: Electric Pusher Motor
Operating Empty Weight: 8kg
Maximum Range: 160km
Typical Cruise Speed: 80km/h
Stall Speed: 50km/h
Maximum Endurance: 2 hours
Maximum Payload: 7kg
Video & C2 Link Range: 30-110 km

 

The AirSecure M26 excels in mapping tasks (for example Geo-Referenced Orthomosaic and NDVI maps), low altitude inspections, day and night live video surveillance and others over a medium to large area.

 M30 • Capable Performer

The AirSecure M30 is a slightly larger version of the popular M26 and functions as a long range, multi-functional, robust aerial platform. Fully automated take-off and landing makes it simple to operate, while requiring only 150m of runway. Its modular design enables relatively small dimensions for transport while maintaining quick and easy assembly. Its electric motor is quiet and requires very low maintenance with batteries that has many life cycles.

 

SPECIFICATIONS
Wing Span: 3.0 m
Construction: Carbon fibre, glass fibre & balsa wood
Propulsion system: Electric Pusher Motor
Operating Empty Weight: 14 kg
Maximum Range: 225 km
Typical Cruise Speed: 90 km/h
Stall Speed: 50 km/h
Maximum Endurance: 2.5 Hours
Maximum Payload: 11 kg
Video & C2 Link Range: Up to 110 km

 

With its extended endurance the AirSecure M30 can spend more time in the air over the target area making it even more suitable for quiet day and night live video surveillance over a long distance.

 W32 • Longe Range Workhorse

The AirSecure W32 was specifically designed for aerial surveillance duties and long endurance. With it’s virtually maintenance free electric propulsion it is extremely quiet and unobtrusive to people or animals. The robust carbon fibre airframe makes it a real workhorse for everyday operation. Take-off and landing is automated and simple from only 150m of runway/dirt road. Its modular design enables relatively small dimensions for transport while maintaining quick and easy assembly.

 

SPECIFICATIONS
Wing Span: 3.1m
Construction: Carbon fibre
Propulsion system: Electric Motor
Operating Empty Weight: 13 kg
Maximum Range: 240+ km
Typical Cruise Speed: 80 km/h
Stall Speed: 55 km/h
Maximum Endurance: 3+ Hours
Maximum Payload: 12 kg
Video & C2 Link Range: Up to 110 km

 

With its long endurance the AirSecure W32 can spend lots of time in the air over the target area making it a leader in its class. Equipped with day/low-light 27x optical zoom camera or the best thermal imaging sensor on a stabilized pan & tilt gimbal this system provides the aerial support needed by rangers or security teams on the ground. Optional long range video equipment can stream live video from the aircraft to the base station up to 100km away.

 

We continuously add more capabilities to the list and have a dedicated team working on research and further development.
