Hexa

Powered for Endurance

Hexa is our lightweight Tethered Aerial Vehicle (TAV) capable of lifting payloads up to 10 lbs. It owes this generous lift capacity to a six-motor configuration, which provides for an extremely stable platform. Of our Zenith AeroTech models, Hexa also has the lowest power consumption, making it the ideal choice for situations where an ample power supply is hard to come by.

How do our TAVs work?

SYSTEM DETAILS

Each Zenith AeroTech system is comprised of a TAV, payload, ground power unit, and remote control device—all optimally integrated according to customer specifications.

SETUP

Upon arriving at the target area, the user removes the TAV, along with its payload, from a manportable or vehicle-mounted case. The TAV is then connected to its tether, which is drawn from the collocated ground power unit.

DEPLOYMENT

The user launches and operates the TAV in either manual or automatic control mode, using a wireless remote control device to effect continuous RF-transmission of flight and telemetry commands, as well as sensor data to one or multiple selected viewers.
