ECA Group extends its UAV IT180 range with a solution for polar exploration

Thursday, June 02 2016
Among its ambitious Research and Development program, ECA Group develops technological solutions and helps in fight against global warming by working with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, CNRS). Following the demand of the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Géophysique de l’Environnement (LGGE), ECA Group has extended UAV IT180 range with an innovative solution adapted for polar region.

ECA Group's IT180 UAV developped for the LGGE teams can be operated at a temperature as low as -30°C. This has been tested in CNRS’s test laboratories down to -40°C as the South Pole weather conditions are very harsh for temperature and wind. The IT180 UAV withstand wind gusts up to 60km/h.

In addition, IT180’s autopilot system has been upgraded in order to allow autonomous flying mode despite a lack of magnetic heading (no compass available over the pole area!) 

ECA Group always makes the difference by improving its products and supplying advanced technology solutions. ECA Group developed the LGGE’s IT180 UAV based on UAV IT180-60 .

Of course, the others performances remain, especially:

  • Long endurance
  • High stability and hoovering
  • Long range
  • Flexibility
  • Ease of use

The test has been successfully completed in altitude over French Alp last week with the LGGE
