Warfighters operating in forward deployed, disconnected environments do not have time to wait for imagery to come from rear echelon sources. The battlefield is constantly changing and they need a Geographic Information System (GIS) at the tactical edge that is portable and easy-to-use that provides precise, reliable imagery when needed.
Built on the proven commercial eVTOL technology of the Trinity F90+ UAS, Trinity Tactical is a durable, rucksack portable aerial mapping solution that rapidly delivers accurate spatial imagery to operators in GNSS-denied environments.
Trinity Tactical performs fully controlled vertical take-offs and landings, even within confined spaces. IP54–rated and equipped with an ESC cooling system, Trinity Tactical flies efficiently for up to 90 minutes under broad environmental conditions at a maximum speed of 33 knots. In just one flight, the system can cover an area of over 1,700 acres or a linear corridor of 55.9 miles in length with an extremely accurate ground sampling distance (GSD) resolution of up to one centimeter.
With a versatile suite of sensors – including high-resolution RGB, multi-spectral and LiDAR – Trinity Tactical is the ultimate solution for capturing data for route planning, battle damage assessment, line of sight analytics, landing zone reconnaissance, and other intelligence collection tasks. Its payloads are fully integrated and can be swapped within seconds using a smart quick–lock mechanism.
Trinity Tactical is stored and carried in a compact backpack and can be operational in a matter of minutes. The modular system allows for easy assembly and payload exchange with no tools required. Equipped with QBase Tactical flight and mission planning software, Trinity Tactical performs automated tactical mapping and terrain visualization missions to reduce the cognitive load on the operator.
With a flight time of 90 minutes, Trinity Tactical can cover an area of 1,730 acres with just one flight. Onboard geotagging, direct georeferencing and preliminary stitching of images streamlines the data capturing and processing workload for the operator.
Trinity Tactical is controlled via a 2.2 GHz and AES encrypted data link.More features in detail
With the QBase 3D software, efficient flight paths are automatically generated using the mission parameters entered by the operator. The operator can adjust parameters in QBase 3D during the mission at any time.QBase 3D
Trinity Tactical is currently available with four different survey grade sensors. These include RGB, multispectral cameras and a LiDAR scanner. The sensors can be exchanged easily and without any tooling in a matter of seconds via a quick-lock mechanism.Sensors Overview
