Trinity F90+ UAV: Rapid disaster relief mission in the Ahr region

Trinity F90+ UAV: Rapid disaster relief mission in the Ahr region

Quantum-Systems has joined the AIFER project (Artificial Intelligence for Emergency Response), to perform a mapping mission in the Ahr Valley, Germany. Several places of the Ahr valley were particularly hit by massive floods in the summer of 2021, including Altenburg, Altenahr, Reimerzhoven, Rech and Dernau. The affected area was surveyed with Trinity F90+, under the lead of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Bavarian Red Cross (BRK).

The resulting maps and images are a powerful tool for prior and post- disaster assessment, which ease monitoring and documenting progress. The project’s data will also serve as a basis to develop artificial intelligence (AI) methods that automatically recognize information from satellite, drone data and social media, with the aim of compiling comprehensive up to date maps of disaster areas. The maps will provide rescue team with aerial intelligence, improving decision making processes. Precise aerial information will allow rescue teams to intervene faster and more efficiently, which can ultimately make a difference in the number of lives saved.

Providing first responders with aerial intelligence data to ease emergency operations is a top Priority for Quantum-Systems. It was our pleasure to join the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Bavarian Red Cross (BRK) in this common goal.

Project Manager, Quantum-Systems GmbH

With a flight time of over 90 minutes, and the long range of up to 100 km, Trinity F90+ was the perfect tool for the mission in the Ahr region. To map the affected area, the rescue teams used the Oblique D2M payload, a powerful oblique imaging system. With five high-resolution, multidirectional RGB cameras the Oblique D2M captures complex geometries with ease.

The main advantage of using drone technology is the immediate data availability. Information and maps that offer an overview of a catastrophic environment are highly needed. In the event of a catastrophe accurate visual data can help rescuers to better coordinate missions.

Quantum-Systems announces delivery of first VECTOR™ ISR systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense

Quantum-Systems announces delivery of first VECTOR™ ISR systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense

Germany, Munich, October 27th, 2022 – Quantum-Systems GmbH, an innovative developer, designer, and manufacturer of advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS), announced today the delivery of the first VECTOR™ systems to the Dutch Ministry of Defense (MoD), together with BSS Holland BV.

Founded in 2015, Quantum-Systems is at the forefront of UAS development. Its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) systems boast industry-leading flight endurance, ease of operation, and reliability. The 2-in-1 vertical take-off reconnaissance UAS, VECTOR™ provides long-endurance, versatility, and flexibility, exceeding the performance of conventional UAS platforms.

VECTOR™ streams live data in real-time using a Mesh IP encrypted data link with a range of 15+ kilometres. Equipped with advanced AI capabilities, the data assessment process of VECTOR™, is supported by automatic detection, identification, and tracking algorithms, which provide on-the-ground tactical units with important safety and efficiency benefits. With a single flight time of 120 minutes, it is suited for applications such as ISR for enhanced situational awareness, area mapping, Search & Rescue (SAR), and convoy and VIP protection. Vector integrates dual electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) gimbaled sensors, enabling missions both, at day and night.

Established in 2008, BSS Holland concentrates on providing C5ISR and robotics solutions for challenging security and defense mission gaps. The collaboration with Quantum-Systems is focused on building future readiness for the Tactical Edge, helping professionals in the defense and homeland security organizations by providing state-of-the-art Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Quantum-Systems’  VECTOR™ & SCORPION™ 2-in-1 ISR system is part of the BSS Holland product portfolio since 2021.

BSS Holland supports the Dutch MoD with delivering, training, and providing service for their Light-Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems catalogue, by pre identifying systems suitable for the use of the MoD. The existence of the drone catalogue drastically reduces the extensive and thorough acquisition time procedures. The Dutch Ministry of Defense uses drones mainly for tasks in the field of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance.

 

Supporting the Dutch Ministry of Defense with aerial data intelligence

The Dutch Ministry of Defense chose VECTOR™ as a preferred system due to its versatility, data protection and security capabilities, enabled by the AES-Encrypted mesh IP data link, which is optimized for tactical applications and delivers unprecedented performance in the most challenging environments. No further details on the quantity and timing of the deliveries will be given as agreed by all parties involved.

The real-time onboard data processing and the capabilities of QBase Tactical Mission Control software which can dynamically adjust the mission in flight, makes VECTOR™ the perfect UAS for a wide range of non-invasive aerial operations, allowing ground teams to orchestrate complex missions with a few clicks.

Trinity F90+ UAV is C3 certified!

Trinity F90+ UAV is C3 certified!

As of October 25th ,2022 Trinity F90+ has received the EASA C3 certification, for the EU drone class with a take-off weight of over 4 kg.

Trinity F90+ is prepared for continuous market fit way ahead schedule, as the C3 certification is required in the EU member states only for UAVs purchased from January 1st, 2024.

The certification acknowledges Quantum-System’s commitment for supplying cutting edge technology, while being fully compliant with the complex regulatory framework for UAVs.

All Trinity F90+ users will be eligible to upgrade their systems for C3 compliance. The upgrade is fully voluntary, as UAVs sold before January 1st, 2024, will still be able to legally operate in the A3 category in Europe.

Ensuring compliance with the requirements of the C3 class, Quantum-Systems worked together with Spanish Alter Technology Group (TÜV Nord) to receive the class C3 label for Trinity F90+. Part of the TÜV Nord Group, Alter Technology Group, is the accredited notified body of the EASA for drone classification and CE declarations.
