Introducing the new Arcturus JUMP™ Fixed Wing VTOL UAV
Arcturus UAV unveils JUMP™, a vertical takeoff and landing system for our T-20 and T-16 fixed wing UAVs. Booms fitted with vertical lift motors and rotors are mounted to each wing to provide vertical lift for takeoff and landing. Vertical lift motors are shut off for winged flight and rotors are feathered longitudinally for minimum drag. Seamless transition to winged flight is achieved by the Piccolo autopilot using Latitude Engineering’s Hybrid-Quadrotor technology. All flight control is fully autonomous.
