The Spirit is a pioneering effort to create an affordable civilian scientific, law enforcement and ENG (Electronic News Gathering) UAV system, with an operational range in excess of 15 km, and is designed for the researcher, academic professional or news crew needing information quickly and reliably. Able to operate out to altitudes of over 3000 feet (1000 m) with a noiseless electric propulsion module and a payload of up to 1 kg - the SPIRIT is a robust UAV system. Its compact auto piloting system takes the hassle out of programming and calibration. The ROVER can be supplied with a specially modified GSP-100 PTZ camera system and telemetry downlink, and can stay in the air for over 1 hour* (* with appropriate batteries and throttle management).Weighing less than 5 kg, the SPIRIT is hand-launched and recovered by a belly landing making it available and responsive on short notice. The simplicity and ease of operation greatly reduce operator training and improve aircraft survivability. A complete system consists of 2/4 SPIRIT UAV's ; A laptop PC Ground Control Station with programming and moving map mission display software; a DSS (Digital Spread Spectrum) telecommand link; antennas, cables and operational spares.
