BeSA:FE UAVs A new generation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Equipping UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) with an arm and smart piloting in order to carry out new types of missions
by Guillaume Thalmann
In the current promising UAV market, professionals who wish to become users of this technology are not yet satisfied with the market offering. Present UAVs do not meet their standards in terms of mission range, operation and safety & security. For example, today's UAV market offering is focused on passive UAVs (an UAV whose mission is solely to gather data without interacting with its target).
A new challenge is to answer different user’s mission needs with UAVs that interact with their environment, using comprehensive piloting/flying during operations. BeSA:FE is a proof of concept for a new generation of UAV that offers active solutions with comprehensive piloting to meet these expectations.
