Global UAV Collaborates with Planck for Moving Vehicle Ops of Unmanned Helicopter

Global UAV Technologies announced today a collaboration with Planck Aerosystems that has resulted in successfully performing a fully autonomous landing and takeoff from a moving off-road vehicle with one of Global UAV’s research and development unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from NOVAerial Robotics Inc. The integrated system included an unmanned helicopter and Planck’s flight control software technology for precision landing on moving platforms.

“The Global UAV Procyon is a powerful platform for a variety of use-cases on its own, but with the integration of Planck’s autonomy software, it has become a game-changing asset for operators in the off-road and offshore environment, said Josh Wells, CEO, Planck Aerosystems, Inc. “Global UAV continues to push the envelope of single-rotor UAV technology, and we’re glad to be a part of that effort here at Planck.”
