Heavy Payloads, More Data, Less Time

The Galaxy platform is an electric single rotor RPAS and is intended to be used for data acquisition. The Galaxy is a heavy lift platform that can carry large sensors for long distance/durations. It features a ballistic recovery parachute in the event of a flight condition outside the set parameters the parachute will automatically deploy. A ground control station (GCS) is used to operate the Galaxy 950, this is an intuitive control system with built in tablet and long-range communication link for simple and safe operation. The GCS and Galaxy Radio modem (RF Link) is designed for long range operation and is FCC approved to be compliant with FAA standards. (FCC ID: NS913P900).

Cybersecurity

We understand the growing information security concerns surrounding drone technology. Innoflight believes honesty and transparency are key factors in making our customers successful. As one of the few UAS manufacturers with a proprietary autopilot, we are able to confidently explain the cybersecurity of our systems.

The Galaxy 950 offers the same key features as the DJI Government Edition UAS:

  • No Data Transmission – The only way data is transmitted is if the user deliberately sends it. No component of the Galaxy 950 will ever transfer data by any means to anyone, including third parties and Innoflight.
  • No Automatic Updates – You have full control on when firmware updates are applied to your fleet. You will never be denied flight capabilities due to outdated firmware. Feel free to test the update when it is convenient for you.
  • Restricted Hardware Pairing – Each Galaxy 950 is specifically linked with its Ground Control Station(s). The GCS of one Galaxy may not be used on a different Galaxy by accident or even on purpose. By design, the Galaxy prevents the use of unauthorized third-party devices.

Where are the autopilot and aircraft manufactured?

The Jupiter+ autopilot is manufactured in Taiwan, and the Galaxy 950 UAS is manufactured in Melbourne, Australia. In 2020, all manufacturing will move to the USA.

Ease of Use

Your field teams should be able to focus more on getting good data and less on aircraft operations. Pilots should not be required to be mechanical or aviation experts to operate an aircraft safely.

Operated via our long range 3-axis Joystick configured 900/868mhz Ground Control Station or a more conventional style RC 2.4ghz system, the platform is simple to control to our Jupiter+ autopilot system.

Experienced remote pilots often understand all aircraft operations within one hour.

    INF Flight Planner

    INF Flight Planner software is used to communicate with the autopilot to complete a flight or project. The software is based on the open source software Mission Planner that has been customized to work for our autopilot system. 

    INF Flight Planner is designed to control all autonomous vehicles fitted with the Jupiter series autopilots. Calibration of the autopilot system is not possible through this software and must be done via separate software that connects directly to the autopilot hardware.
