Abu Dhabi's Adasi showcases advanced unmanned systems at Umex 2016

posted on 07/03/2016: 1727 views

The UAE drone maker Abu Dhabi Autonomous Systems Investments (Adasi) is participating in the second Unmanned System Exhibition (Umex) to showcase its Aerostat 200, a moored surveillance system that can remain airborne for one week without the need for maintenance, Sulaiman Al Shamsi, Operation Director at Adasi told WAM.

Aerostat-200 is a large fabric envelope filled with helium, and can rise up to an altitude of 1,000 feet while tethered by a single cable. It can lift a 70 kg payload to an operating altitude providing low-level, downward-looking radar coverage.

Adasi will also showcase its Al Sabr system, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using a rotorcraft design and a fully autonomous vertical take-off and landing platform, as well as parachutes and other high-quality, customer-tailored and easy-to-use military equipment.

Al Shamsi said 80 Emirati engineers are working for Adasi's autonomous systems sector.

An autonomous system can be programmed to automatically carry out specific operational missions (with a certain level of self-governance), under the control and guidance of a human-operator at mission level.

Through its concerted efforts in support of diversifying the UAE economy, as well as with its partners, Adasi strives to develop and strengthen the country's technological capabilities.

Al Shamsi noted that 29 Emirati companies are taking part in Umex 2016, held from 6th-8th March at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre, to showcase their innovative solutions set to make a qualitative leap in the unmanned systems industry. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
