5 piliers technologiques

AERODYNAMIC DESIGN

A specific double-support wing drone profile which combines:

  • Large photovoltaic cell surface to capture the maximum amount of solar power
  • Very high aerodynamic performances

COMMUNICATION DESIGN

A blend of the latest satellite and cellular technology to provide a secure and permanent link between the drone and the control centre.

POWER DESIGN

An ultra-reliable, high performance and backed-up system to distribute and control the power between:

  • The different systems
  • The high performance batteries

STRUCTURAL DESIGN

Use of the latest manufacturing techniques used in competitive watersports and aviation industry to guarantee a light and resistant structure for the SolarXOne drone.

CONTROL AND COMMAND DESIGN

An ultra-performance system which meets aeronautical standards, ensuring:

  • Drone configuration according to current regulations
  • Automation of all drone flight phases

Which guarantees you:

  • Maximum safety
  • Flexible use to adapt to the different worldwide regulations governing drone flights

ENVIRONMENTAL PERCEPTION DESIGN

The latest Artificial Intelligence technologies are used to enable the drone to detect objects automatically.

Artificial Intelligence enables obstacles to be avoided and the control centre to be alerted.

Design

Solar power optimisation is at the heart of the design for the SolarXOne drone, which is completely energy-independent

The unconventional design of the SolarXOne energy-independent drone that can make its own decisions is the product of the alliance between advanced aeronautical studies and high performance energy tools.

Performances

Thanks to the technical performances of the SolarXOne energy-independent drone that can make its own decisions, XSun increases the effectiveness of your surveillance and information gathering missions

AUTONOMY

The energy-independent SolarXOne drone can fly continuously over long distances for long periods, day or night (under certain conditions).

ELECTRICAL POWER

The SolarXOne drone has an extremely high performance electrical system. This distributes the power securely and is the best possible way to the drone’s various items of electrical equipment, via its different power buses. The flexibility of its electrical architecture offers the possibility of adapting different payloads on the SolarXOne drone.

MULTI-CONFIGURATION PAYLOAD

Its structural characteristics and high load capacity enable the SolarXOne drone to carry different payloads:

  • Visible E/O + I/R gyroscopic balls
  • High performance cameras
  • Thermal cameras
  • LIDAR

AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCES

The SolarXOne drone’s double-wing design provides it with excellent aerodynamic performance. It enables:

  • The solar power surface to be increased to maximise electricity productions
  • An excellent level of control and natural stability for the drone in flight
