We are proud to announce that Threod Systems has successfully integrated VTOL capability into our NATO class I UAV Stream C. The transition algorithms and VTOL-fixed wing functions have been developed in-house for Threods proprietary autopilot.
VTOL brings a lot of mobility and convenience, especially in difficult terrain conditions. It enables the UAV usage in confined space, inside compounds and urban conditions. It also aids the operations in the natural environment like forests or mountain areas. Foremost it can be operated from a battleship or a rescue vessel.
The trend in the industry is to implement VTOL capability to bigger UAVs. Stream C is perceived as NATO class I UAV that does the class II job and with the new feature Threod is aiming for an utterly competitive position on the market.
The first public presentation of Stream C VTOL will be at the international defence exhibition IDEX 2019 in Abu Dhabi from 17th to 25th of February.
