The US-1 is a rugged, long duration performance aircraft. It represents a complete departure from drone designs of the past by leveraging an airframe that has battery cells integrated into the structure. This patent pending design increases power, reduces weight, and provides stable long duration flight. The aircraft will carry payload up to 6.2 lbs. and is currently certified with popular FLIR and Workswell camera systems that will meet most mission needs. If you have a special payload need, please give us a call. We are happy to explore special needs.
The US-1 is designed, engineered and assembled in our Santa Clara California factory. The system provides secure flight data, and for special needs customers there are different options for data security. We are happy to accommodate government and sensitive enterprise customers with special data security needs.
The aircraft is designed to endure the harsh service found in first responder missions, and it’s well suited for industrial and commercial applications that demand long duration flight. The current FLIR DUO PRO R thermal and visible payloads will satisfy many industrial applications. For SAR and First Responder missions that require greater standoff, the 30x optical zoom in the Sony low-light camera in our WIRIS payload is the right option.
It features a 2-year or 500 hour tip-to-top warranty, and support is provided by our Santa Clara based applications team.
FLIR DUO PRO R
The FLIR DUO PRO R 640 x 512 thermal with 25° FOV lens and 4k visible payload is a good choice for most medium to short range applications. The visible camera offers digital zoom only, but it’s lighter than optical zoom cameras so you get the best flight duration the US-1 has to offer. For those needing the extra range performance of an optical zoom camera, we recommend the WIRIS system.
The FLIR DUO PRO R 640 x 512 pixel resolution camera is a good choice for medium to short range applications.
WIRIS LONG RANGE PAYLOAD SYSTEM
For missions that require maximum zoom capability, we recommend the WIRIS Security UAV camera system. This payload offers a Sony 30x optical zoom camera with excellent low light performance. The thermal camera has 800 x 600 resolution with a 21.2° horizontal field of view, providing the best resolution available in a UAV ready package. The thermal sensitivity and resulting image quality is better than the DUO PRO R 640 x 512.

IMPOSSIBLE AEROSPACE GROUND STATION
The ground station is designed for precision control and comfortable direct access to vital controls, including return-to-home and camera controls. There’s no need to click through menus that block your view of the camera. The control inputs provide unique tactile feedback and they are intuitive and easy to learn. The control station can be mounted on a tripod or a conventional strap for extended flight comfort.
Tactile, direct access functions:
- Return to Launch
- Position vs Altitude Mode
- Camera Pan
- Camera Tilt
- Camera Function (Thermal/Visible) Camera Zoom
- Camera Palette
Multiple programmable autonomous features:
- Go to scene and orbit
- Search and rescue patterns
- User definable search area
A circular search pattern can be useful for establishing a perimeter around the last known location of a suspect.
The user defined pattern search can ensure full coverage of complex areas.
Multiple way points can be dropped and a unique altitude can be set for each one. The altitude is shown in the box on the lower left of the screen.
The corridor search feature is useful alleyways and other narrow areas. You can bend any portion of the search area and adjust the width.
