Approval Marks Stepping Stone in Path to Greater Commercialization
[ORLANDO, FL] Homeland Surveillance & Electronics, LLC (HSE) a full-service UAV company, together with
UASolutions Group, Inc. an aviation consulting firm, received notification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of approval on the AG-V6A+ unmanned aircraft system (UAS) for Commercial Operations over 55 lbs.
The AG-V6A+ is a fully autonomous, unmanned & remotely piloted multirotor designed for ultra-efficient spraying operations in Agriculture, Public Safety, Invasive Species Management, etc. The aircraft weighs 75.3 lbs on a full payload.
With terrain following, up to 1-centimeter accuracy, and beyond average coverage rate- it’s built for precision spraying. The AG-V6A+ is being used in various industries across the world. This is a key move to expand unmanned aircraft spraying.
"We're excited that our AG-V6A+ has passed the FAA's rigorous standards! This is a major milestone in the role drones play in Precision Agriculture. The increase in payload capacity will allow farmers to cover up to 50% more acres per flight than the 10-liter models," said Terry Sanders, VP Sales & Marketing of HSE-UAV.
“We are very pleased that the collaborative efforts between UASolutions Group, HSE-UAV, and the FAA were successful in finalizing this request, pushing forward the utilization of aircraft over 55 lbs,” said Kelly Neubecker, CEO of UASolutions Group. “This hard-fought effort opens the door for others while making more large-scale commercial UAS operations accessible.
