XMobots Apoena Series

The ApoenA is a Low Altitude Long Endurance (LALE) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle designed for several kinds of highly persistent sensing roles. Its project was focused on reliability, with the platform, hardware and software development based on FAR 23, DO-160 and DO-178B standards, respectively. There are two different versions: ApoenA 1000 which was optimized for monitoring missions from 100 to 500km2 of grid areas such as terrain mapping and geomagnetic researches, being able to takeoff in several limiting conditions to others AUVs like narrow rural roads and irregular fields. This is due to its small wingspan (that has the same size of a truck shaft), landing gear with high impact absortion and stability/ controlability characteristics. On the other hand, the ApoenA 3000 was optimized for long distance linear monitoring missions such as coasts and borders, power line, pipelines, all of this due to his high endurance and satellite link communication.

Main Dimensions

Control Interface
The UAV can be operated in autonomous, semi-autonomous and remote mode through a highly ergonomic joystick and throttle. All vehicles information is displayed in a revolutionary interface, with the top layer showing sensor data according to FARIFR (Instrumented Flight Rules) and bottom layers showing five fixed cameras (frontal, left, right, aft and down) according to FARVFR (Visual Flight Rules).
