Medical drone logistics
A delivery drone for the highest quality standards in the field of medicine

Together with ADAC Luftrettung, we developed a fully autonomous logistics drone for the highly efficient transport of blood products. Its foundation was our Cargo Robot platform, which was extended by the project partner to include special features for flight safety and load security.

AirSenseAir situation display and UTM at new levels of performance

Collision avoidance in the airspace between manned and unmanned aviation is becoming increasingly important. For drones beyond the visual line of sight, we have therefore developed AirSense, a high-performance system for effective detect and avoid (DAA).

  • Detection of ADS-B transponder and FLARM signals of manned aircraft
  • Automatic airspace analysis with warning of critical approaches
  • Fail-safe processing of airspace data on a high-performance redundant server
  • Stand alone system or full integration into the Multirotor Ground Control Station (GCS)
  • Optional RTK - base station for the provision of correction data

Everything at a glance

Airspace monitoring in the Ground Control Station with AirSense DAA

DAA for drone logistics

AirSense can be booked stand alone as a DAA solution via direct access (laptop or smart device), but is also fully compatible with the Multirotor Ground Control Station (GCS).

Optional RTK

Its antenna module receives transponder signals and forwards them to the AirSense server via a mobile data connection. However, it can also be used as a base station to provide correction data. This enables the positional accuracy of the multirotor drone to within a few mm, which again opens up new possibilities, especially for fully autonomous landing.

One screen, more overview

Customers operating a multirotor drone with the latest, triple-redundant flight control generation beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) receive the current air situation image of the environment directly in the live image of the GCS. This eliminates the need to operate a separate DAA solution with an additional screen, as is currently necessary when integrating third-party products.

Fast data acquisition

Flight paths of individual aircraft are traced over the last known positions, as well as identifier, flight altitude and type of air traffic (helicopter, aircraft or drone) are displayed.

G5plus Flight Controller100% Made by Multirotor

The G5plus Flight Controller has three redundant flight control cores. These control units continuously calculate the position and position data of the aircraft. By comparing the derived data and a powerful decision logic, faulty results are immediately detected and the corresponding core is deactivated. A fourth auxiliary core handles communication with the world outside and ensures a high-performance data link without impairing flight stabilization.

Each flight control core has its own set of attitude, magnetic and altitude sensors. This redundancy protects not only in case of total failure of one sensor. Deviations in the sensor data, e.g. due to incorrect measurements, are also corrected and taken into account during flight stabilization.

Standardized interfaces facilitate the evaluation of flight data. Via a USB connection the G5plus Flight Controller can be configured and flight data can be retrieved without additional hardware. Furthermore, a multitude of additional interfaces for the connection of peripheral devices are available. Some of these interfaces are redundant, so that e.g. three GNSS receivers can be operated simultaneously.

The G5plus Flight Controller communicates via an AES encrypted WLAN connection. Mission data can thus be transferred easily and safely directly to the aircraft during operation.

A powerful Flight Recorder captures all data occurring during the flight, such as current attitude and position, sent control commands, status of the current mission, etc. at a high rate. This allows, for example, the trajectory of a mission to be easily traced and linked to external events such as the acquisition of single images.
