Local sensitive data not leaving your shore
The INF Galaxy is a professional heavy lift UAS single rotor (electric helicopter) platform that has been developed as an efficient way to carry a wide range of sensors including the LiDAR USA Imaging range. It has many innovative features that make it a reliable, safe and efficient survey tool. Galaxy’s have now flown for thousands of hours over multiple years in many different commercial sectors worldwide.
Designed for purpose
Designed for surveying, our design team thought of everything for the Galaxy. Assembly, disassembly and transport is a quick one tool process. The Galaxy can be left assembled or packed down to a compact size of 1400x350x500 (LWH:mm) within minutes.
Every Galaxy goes through a full system and flight check process before being delivered. Each system is customized to your needs and payload requirements to provide the best endurance and overall stability.
Operated via our long range 3-axis Joystick configured Ground Control Station or a more conventional style RC 2.4ghz system the Galaxy is a very simple to control platform thanks to our Jupiter- H series autopilot system. Autonomous take offs, way point missions and landings are simple to execute with the just flick of a switch. Compatible with MAVlink mission planning software, setting up and collecting data is a very fast process saving labor and in-field time.
An event log is stored on the autopilot for PPK photogrammetry downloadable via our autopilot software. The log will store, GPS time stamp, Height MSL, Height AGL and IMU data.
The Galaxy is destined for BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line Of Sight) missions and use. We have protocols in place to meet the strict FAA requirements and ensure that the Galaxy is operated safely and complaint to the regulations.
Data security is the priority
This reliability and toughness paired with the fact that sensitive data gathered does not leave its localised area makes the Galaxy one of the most data secure platforms in the world. This has resulted in the Galaxy being sought-after and utilised throughout the America’s, Europe and the Pacific region.
The Galaxy can include the optional DRS Parachute system. DRS Parachutes are the most light and effective parachute system on the market.
The case houses the full Galaxy 950, Ground Control Station and assembly tools. Very rugged and able to be transported on commercial airlines.
No other single rotor on the market in this class has the ability to pack down this small and easily.
Length – 132cm (52″)
Height – 42cm (16.5″)
Width – 52cm (20″)
A ground control station (GCS) is used to operate the Galaxy, this is an intuitive control system developed in-house to provide a reliable robust link with the Galaxy in the most difficult RF environments.
Other optional features
The Galaxy UAV is RTK ready and seamlessly links with our own RTK Base Station allowing to receive real time GPS information and geologging of images as they’re triggered during flight.
5v, 7v, 12v, 24v
Power payloads from main batteries, no need for separate payload battery.
