Article Headlines
  • UMS Skeldar announced at IDEX 2021 that its V-200 vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle is now capable of performing fully automatic take-off and landing (ATOL) maneuvers from naval vessels
  • David Willems, vice-president of Business Development and Strategy at UMS Skeldar, told Janeson 17 January that existing ship-based VTOL UAVs do not possess full ATOL capability and typically require direct human intervention with an operator manually controlling the air vehicle during take-off and landing sequences. In contrast, the naval ATOL capability integrated into the V-200 is designed to fully automate deck landings with combined laser altimeter and GPS inputs that track the air vehicle’s location and calculate the required altitude reduction
