Battery Mounting Crash Cage
Previously mounted onto the sides of the core, our SkyJib Ti-QR have Battery Mounting directly on the crash cage, taking them out of the way of the propellers and Retractable Landing Gear. For SkyJib Ti-QR Models. To accommodate for the Ti-QR update we have designed battery mounting plates for the XM to allow clearance for the Quick Release Mechanism.

Aeronavics has developed a range of Ground or Base Station units (Mission Control) to allow the operator of the Aerial Robot to easily view on board video streams. Live telemetry data shows the state and health of the craft and also allows for a means to operate the craft without hand held control interfaces such as RC transmitters.
1. The “Lite” unit is an RC Transmitter mounted display screen and wireless video downlink - this is the simplest way to interact with the craft in order to pilot and view simultaneously what the craft is seeing, and operate the camera remotely.
2. The “Ground Station” unit is housed in a quality and robust SKB case and offers a variety of interface options - this self-powered unit can run additional monitors, provide USB charging, video control interfaces as well as its own Hi Resolution monitor and Remote control unit. Dimensions: 500 x 400 x 280 mm
3. The “Flight Ops” version has all the features of the “Ground Station” unit as well as a joystick control 2.4 Ghz 6 channel transmitter for a second operator to con- trol the craft or its on-board devices such as Thermal imaging cameras and laser sighting equipment. It also has an i-Pad mounting facility for tablet control interfaces such as way- point and grid pattern autonomous flight modes and an array of automated flight and camera functions. This unit enables two people to efficiently conduct full search and rescue, sur- veillance and situational awareness operations in the field, as well as advanced camera control for film and television. Dimensions: 500 x 400 x 280 mm
PIX4D Mapping Software
Pix4Dmapper is used by a wide range of industries such as Mining, Agriculture, Topography, Natural Resources Management, Emergency Response and many more to help professionals of multiple domains with mapping as an easy day to day task.

Aerial Robotics – THE NEXT “BIG THING”
Aerial Robotics or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, are already proving to be ‘the next big thing’ comparable to the personal computer 40 years ago. There are countless applications in a wide array of industries to help save time and money, increase safety, offer peace of mind and expand creative perspectives. Systems are easy to use, affordable, quiet and environmentally friendly; more great reasons to adopt this technology.
From Hollywood blockbusters to wedding photography - aerial robotics is changing the way video and images are captured. Surreal sweeping shots, a true birds-eye view... Wildlife documentaries, commercials, news reports, advertisements and live broadcasts of sporting events are all enhanced by the new perspectives our systems offer. World renowned for advanced vibration dampening, payload capacity, transportability and durability, our systems have been the preferred choice for industry professionals for several years.
Easy to deploy, operate and retrieve, these systems are an essential resource to increase situational awareness, assess damage from natural disasters, search for missing bushwalkers, find hot spots in forest fires, sample air for pollution, map environments, inspect infrastructure, secure borders, report accidents and monitor environmental change. Infrared and Thermal Imaging cameras and various other equipment such as 3D LIDAR expand the functional value of these craft; the potential is limitless and we are ever expanding the scope of possibility.
Cost effective, saving time and reducing risk to human lives – industrial applications are expanding for this technology and we are developing specialized craft for these; an ideal tool for mapping, planning and progress monitoring. Property developers can provide views from the 3rd, 4th, 10th floor of a building that does not even exist yet. Damage to property and the environment can be swiftly and accurately assessed after natural disasters; architects can create instant 3D images and imprints of subject areas and structures. Mining companies can gather volumetric data in just minutes; surveyors and construction companies can 3D map area’s with relative ease; a power company can inspect lines and transformers, and carry leader lines across gulley’s and ravines. This list grows daily.
Scan your property with a birds-eye view to inspect infrastructure and stock - gathering crucial information for planning the day’s activities. Remove the safety hazard of monitoring and mustering in rough terrain, save fuel, machinery costs and time simultaneously. Count stock instantly, accurately and remotely, recognize animals in distress. A number of agri-specific sensors are being developed for Precision Agriculture to monitor crop health, growth, irrigation, forecast yields, detect diseases at early stage and systems are even used to scare birds. Precision Spraying is under development for quick and precise crop and weed spraying, with greater safety for operator and environment. Forestry and fisheries are also opening to new possibilities that enable greater productivity.
