Unmanned Helicopter

Aquila is a unmanned helicopter utilizing state-of-the-art solutions and accomplishments in both technical and scientific fields.

Technical parameters

Aquila is a fully autonomous flying unit equipped with an on-board flight control system - autopilot, allowing for vertical launch, autonomous flight and vertical landing. Both the autonomous takeoff and landing (VTOL) procedure can be performed in a 4 × 4 m area. Aquila is equipped with a control station to define the BSP flight path and view current flight characteristics. Programming a helicopter flight is reduced to the use of navigation points on the electronic map of the area which the flight will be made. All navigation points can be changed during the helicopter flight by the control station operator. Aquila is equipped in observation head with a thermal camera and a video camera.

Camera image is displayed and recorded in real time on the control station.


Aquila is capable to carry vision systems and data acquisition systems of a total weight of 10 kilograms, making it widely used in both civilian and military missions, and wherever the use of crews exposes the lives of pilots. Examples of UAV's use include: Border Services, Fire Brigade, Military, Police, Geodetic Company, Meteorological Works, State Forest Administration, Energy Companies, Advertising Companies, etc. UAVs exemplary tasks include: Broad monitoring in combination with diagnostics, thermal imaging, missiles, rescue missions, etc.

Unmanned Helicopter

Aquila is a determinant of technological trends in unmanned aerial vehicles. It is based on the concept of a helicopter. Aquila is able to take off, hang, fly and land in full autonomy and has the ability to stay in the air for 2 hours. It can be operated by only one operator. The system is designed to meet civilian and military requirements.


The basic functionality of each proposed user hardware configuration of the system should be:

  • Implementing bidirectional transparent data transmission with IP v4 protocol in dedicated stream (max 100 Mbps).
  • Implementing bidirectional transparent data transmission in dedicated transparent channels RS232C - V.24 (max 1 Mbps).
  • Implementing communications on the assumed mission area by the UAV.
  • Possibility to configure basic system parameters (radio channel, RF power, etc.) via the interface of the above devices.
