LOS ANGELES. AEE Aviation Technology Inc., maker of electric aviation and camera technology, in Los Angeles, California, is introducing its Mach 4 commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly called an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) or drone, capable of multiple payloads and built to meet the needs of law enforcement, search and rescue, inspection, and surveying applications.
Measuring a little over two feet in length, the AEE’s Mach 4 can travel at a cruising speed of close to 30 miles per hour with a range of almost two miles and flight times up to 40 minutes in length. The UAV package comes with a Y-12 ground station hand controller equipped with 1.4 gigahertz (GHz) for flight control, an aluminum siding carrying case that includes a professional charger and battery pack, and three antennas attached to the ground station, which supports a 5.8GHz video transmission and a 1.4 GHz digital radio system. Equipped with a YT35 standard 4K camera with a 1 / 2.3-megapixel sensor, the Mach 4 is also available with a 10:1 zoom camera payload as well as an advanced optical thermal payload for search-and-rescue or inspection missions.
“We are pleased to offer to the Mach 4 to our commercial customers around the world because we expect the Mach 4 to raise the bar and redefine value in the commercial UAV industry,” says AEE founder and CEO Andy Zheng. “One key advantage, for example, of the Mach 4 is its long flight time and we also believe its ground station controller is in a class by itself for similar products at this price point.”
AEE’s Mach 4 will be available to select resellers in June. Packages are expected to start in the $5,500 range, for the base configuration.
