Auterion and Quantum-Systems partner on two new VTOL sUAS for US Defense and Security markets

Integration with Auterion’s Open Source Operating System aligns with DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture

Los Angeles, California, and Munich, Germany – 10 February 2020 – Today, Auterion Government Solutions Inc (AGS Inc) and Quantum-Systems GmbH announced that they have partnered to bring the Vector and Scorpion small Unmanned Aerial Systems #sUAS to the U.S. Government Defense and Security markets. The partnership brings together best-in-class sUAS hardware with a secure, scalable, open source, operating system, Auterion OS. Auterion OS is currently employed on an ecosystem of sUAS from small multi-rotors to hybrid VTOL Group 2 air vehicles.

Vector and Scorpion form a 2-in-1 system kit. Scorpion is a tri-copter that can be utilized for dynamic urban environments and other mission sets that require a combination of maneuverability and hover to collect ISR and Situation Awareness information. If required it
comes with a tethering system to enable 24/7 operations.

By configuring the base fuselage with fixed wings and tail section, Scorpion transforms into Vector, an energy-efficient, fixed-wing VTOL for longer range, longer endurance ISR missions.

Quantum-Systems currently utilizes a proprietary flight control stack as well as its QBase3D command and control software on these two air vehicles. When the platforms are integrated with Auterion Enterprise PX4 TM software, Auterion Ground Station software, and the Auterion Hand-Held Ground Control Station (H-GCS) they form an open ecosystem that is aligned and integrated with DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture and requirements for a common Group 1 control system.

This integration enables these sUAS to be extensible, tailorable and interoperable for customers in both the US Defense and Security markets.

David Sharpin, CEO of AGS Inc said, “we are excited to be working with Quantum-Systems to bring forth a new, integrated, rucksack portable sUAS that we feel will transform the way our customers collect, process and disseminate ISR and Situation Awareness information, in all environments. AGS Inc and Quantum-Systems are standing up manufacturing operations in the US and are utilizing assured subsystems and software to provide a secure solution offering for our customers”.

Florian Seibel, CEO of Quantum-Systems said, “teaming up with AGS Inc will change the market in many ways. AGS Inc is a key partner in the development and deployment of DoD’s Group 1 UAS Architecture. Together with our new tactical platforms Vector and Scorpion, this
will meet the requirements and needs of the U.S. Government Defense and Security markets. We will enable our global customers to either run our proprietary stack or be integrated with AGS Inc’s enterprise software and H-GCS from now on. By setting up a US entity, Quantum-Systems will move closer to the customer while working on setting up a large scale US production”.

DRONES 02/2020 – Project FreeRail: Automated Control of the Deutsche Bahn rail network

DRONES 02/2020 – Project FreeRail: Automated Control of the Deutsche Bahn rail network

When autumn storms rage or snow masses in winter weigh heavily on rotten trees then chaos in rail traffic was often pre-programmed in recent years.
Tracks had to be closed and train connections interrupted or delayed. In order to be able to react to such incidents an automated, drone-based system called “Freerail” for vegetation monitoring will be developed.

The DRONES magazine has highlighted the current status of the FreeRail project and reports in detail in its current issue 02/20. Download the article here (German only).

The kick-off report about the scope of the project was published here in 2019. If you need further information, feel free to contact us

DRONES 02/2020 – Project FreeRail: Automated Control of the Deutsche Bahn rail network

Modernity Fund (mFUND) for project “FreeRail” approved

FreeRail Project – Automated recording of vegetation near the tracks and of storm damage along the Deutsche Bahn network with autonomously operated drones (Trinity)

The “FreeRail” project, which has been running since September 2019, will be funded under the Modernitätsfond (“mFUND“) funding directive with a total of EUR 2.82 million from 1 September 2019, 67% of which will be funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. A big step for the network coordinator Quantum-Systems GmbH and its project partners.

The project consortium consists of experts from DB Fahrwegdienste GmbH, geo-konzept GmbH, Technical University Ingolstadt and the city of Ingolstadt under the project management of the network coordinator Quantum-Systems GmbH. The starting point of the joint project “FreeRail” deals with a digital solution for a growing problem in the maintenance of the infrastructure of Deutsche Bahn (DB).

Fully automated railway inspection as one goal for the FreeRail project

Controlling and maintaining the constantly growing vegetation along DB’s 33,440 km long rail network is a time-consuming and challenging task for DB Fahrwegdienste GmbH. In order to comply with the prescribed traffic safety obligation, the vegetation along the entire route network must be inspected, documented and evaluated by qualified personnel at least once a year. At the same time, rail traffic should not be disrupted during this control work.

In the “FreeRail” project, the scientific and technical principles of a future, fully automated, drone-based system for digitized vegetation control and registration of damage following storms along Deutsche Bahn’s route network are to be developed by February 2022. On the one hand, the aim is to design and investigate the technologies and operating processes required for this. On the other hand, a functional demonstrator is to be developed and tested on a selected route section.

Trinity eVTOL UAV combined with self-contained drone hangar

With the help of a long-range drone from the Trinity UAV line from Quantum-Systems GmbH, which is capable of vertical launch, different sensor data will be collected along the test track. The drone will take off and land fully automatically from a self-sufficient drone hangar permanently stationed in the immediate vicinity of the test track. Using a special communication and data processing system, the collected data is automatically evaluated and transferred to the responsible employee of DB Fahrwegdienste GmbH.

Within the framework of traffic control and digital infrastructure management in Bavaria, the project will now receive financial support from the mFUND of the BMVI as of 01.09.2019.

With the mFUND research initiative, the BMVI has been supporting research and development projects on data-based digital applications for mobility 4.0 since 2016. In addition to financial support, the mFUND supports networking between actors from politics, business and research with various event formats, as well as access to the data portal mCLOUD.
