Poseidon VTOL Family

Poseidon VTOLs are designed to serve as long-range long-endurance surveillance and integration platforms, and can operate independently, or within a multi-purpose swarm. 

Poseidon VTOLs have from 2 to 8 hrs endurance and up to 90 KIAS, are equipped with long-range data downlink and can accommodate a large variety of payloads, including video and thermal gimbals, high-resolution imaging camera, drone detection radar, SAR, phased array RF detector, deployable payloads, etc. 

Poseidon VTOLs are equipped with SLAM-based visual navigation, and an onboard processing unit. Poseidon VTOLs have small vessel, vehicle, or trailer launch and recovery capabilities utilizing a portable platform. 

Poseidon VTOLs may be utilized as a swarm data collection and processing platform and act as a data link repeater for multiple swarm members or ground stations. 

Multiple additional payloads with a total weight of up to 25 kg can be integrated inside the fuselage or attached on external pylons. Poseidon VTOLs were also tested during maritime search and rescue exercises, locating man overboard, and delivering emergency beacons and floatation aids in adverse weather conditions, as well as other deployable payload delivery scenarios.
