Alticam Video System Equips Aerovel Flexrotor

Hood Technology is displaying at Unmanned Systems North America a Flexrotor, the remarkable long-range VTOL aircraft from Aerovel, equipped with a HoodTech stabilized imaging system. 

HoodTech president, Andy von Flotow, notes, “Flexrotor brings a quantum jump in capability to the small-UAS sector, with its unique mix of VTOL, long-endurance, small size, and fully-automated operation both in flight and on the ground.  Adding our best-in-class imaging should make for a remarkably powerful combination.” 

The Alticam system, mounted in a nose bay forward of the aircraft’s rotor/propeller, combines a lightweight stabilized turret and onboard image processor. The system compensates for airframe motion, delivers video of exceptional acuity, and tracks targets automatically so that “hands-off” surveillance can be routinely maintained for extended periods. Performance of these stabilized imaging systems has been well-proven in recent years, with many hundreds of thousands of flight-hours accumulated in operations at sea and over land.
