The PrecisionVision 13 (PV13) UAS from Leading Edge offers the latest advancements in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) for aerial applications in a wide variety of industries including agricultural, vector control, forestry and noxious weed control. Download product brochure.
The PV13 offers a diversity of payload systems ranging from surveillance and multispectral sensors to three interchangeable UAS aerial application spray systems. The PV13 was engineered in parallel with the PrecisionVision iOS APP by Leading Edge and is capable of fully autonomous aerial applications and multispectral surveillance for photogrammetry flight operations.
The PV13 consists of the UAS airframe, propulsion system, PrecisionVision Avionics suite, payload system, PrecisionVision Onboard App and datalink system. The entire PrecisionVision UAS product line is engineered around safety with three GPS receivers designed to fail over if one or two GPS receivers fail. If all GPS receivers fail, there are an additional two inertial navigation units to maintain controlled flight. If a propulsion motor or electronic speed controller fails, the PV13 will maintain level flight, providing the pilot the ability to land the aircraft safely.
The PV13 meets the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) weight requirements of less 55 pounds, is compliant with the FAA Part 107 licenses and operating limitations and meets all of the FAA emergency response features for loss link, lost coms, return-to-home and emergency procedures.
