A 25 kg heavy drone of the model “Matador-0” was deliverd to the Technical University in Graz. The purpose of the UAV is to carry the scanner that is being developed in the DCNA-project.DCNA - Disaster Competence Network Austria
The payload has a weight of 10 kg and is 2.4 m wide. The necessary distance between the antennas for precise positioning is the reason for the payloads dimensions.
The electronic system and the measuring tools have to be decoupled from the vibrations of the drone. This goal was achieved with an array of adjustable vibration dampeners.
An even more powerful drone with a licence for MTOW 25 – 150 kg is currently in development.
