With a unique cylindrical design that’s more portable and durable than conventional multirotors, Ascent AeroSystems’ 'Spirit' can fly longer, farther, faster and carry more than other UAVs in its weight class, making it the ideal platform for mission-critical operations. Spirit is:
▪ COMPACT: Unlike conventional multirotors that have 4-6 motors mounted on extended arms, the Spirit has a unique cylindrical configuration that is far more compact, making it easier to transport where needed.
▪ RUGGED: The simple geometry of the cylinder makes the Spirit inherently strong and simple to weatherize, so it is less prone to damage during ground operations and able withstand harsh environments and weather.
▪ EFFICIENT: With a low-drag profile, more than 3x the lifting surface and an airframe that has been reduced to an absolute minimum, the Spirit can fly faster, farther, longer, and carry more than a comparable multirotor.
▪ VERSATILE: The Spirit can be rapidly reconfigured in the field with modules necessary for specific missions and can be deployed manually or autonomously from the ground or from moving vehicle, air, or sea platforms.
