Tioga Tek – Remote Intelligence takes flight!

Matt Hoppes speaks with Remote Intelligence about their unmanned aerial vehicles

 

by John Vogt - February 12, 2014

Welcome to our first addition of Tioga Tek with Matt Hoppes here on Wellsboro Home Page. This feature is designed to help keep you informed regarding the high technology being developed and/or used here in Tioga County. We hope that you will find this new feature educational and fascinating as we explore these high tech innovations together.

On today’s program, Matt’s special guests are Merlin Benner and Rob Schwarz of Remote Intelligence. The focus today is on unmanned systems in the sky used for both research and development including environmental mapping. Rob Schwarz says that this is just the beginning of this kind of technology and compares it to where the internet was twenty years ago. Things are developing very quickly and Remote Intelligence is on the front edge of this new air-technology.

Merlin and Rob also discuss their development of the Maveric, a unique kind of air system that they hope to sell to both government and civil organizations.

The Maveric Unmanned Aerial System comes complete with three camera systems. A forward looking daytime camera for pilot flight information, a Gimbaled Daytime camera for targeted observation that retracts for landing, and an additional Thermal camera payload for heat signature operations. The Maveric weighs in at just 2.4 pounds and her composite wing can wrap around the fuselage for tube storage and transportation. It can be carried and deployed by an operator in almost any terrain. This platform is quiet and tactical with up to 70 minutes flight time. The Maveric is electric powered and can operate up to 26000 foot elevations. Most flights are 150-200 Ft AGL for best video and picture quality. The brain of the Maveric is fully autonomous so all you have to concentrate on is operating the cameras in high stress operations.
