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.

DESIGN 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 900/868mhz 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.

GROUND CONTROL

GCS

The ground control station (GCS PRO) is used to operate the Galaxy, this is an intuitive control system with built in tablet and long-range communication/video 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).

10.1 inch HD and high-brightness touch screen display, integrating data link, video link, radio controller and PC system all in one. Many functions are achieved in the GCS Pro, such as Scanlift control, gimbal control, real-time flight status feedback, data and video transmission, route planning, etc. The industrial-grade computer and military-grade transmission links not only ensure the security and stability of the drones, but also are simple to operate and easy to carry. 

The GCS PRO has a built-in 3S 10200mAh Lipo battery which can provide 4 hour operation time with full capacity. An external 12V battery is also available.
