Phase Vision, an expert in the measurement of while light, has aided AESIR in developing the latest generation of advanced unmanned autonomous airborne vehicles (UAAVs).
The aircrafts at AESIR are based on the Coanda effect. According to this effect, the fast moving air over a circular aerofoil section generates a thrust in the downward direction and a low pressure zone that creates a lift. The aircrafts are capable of vertical take off and landing and are equipped with a larger payload capacity when compared with the fixed wing UAVs due to the AESIR technology. AESIR aircrafts have all the necessary features such as, high speed and hovering capability in combination with the on board camera facilitates image recognition etc, which qualify it as an efficient and intimidating law enforcement tool. The aircraft overcame the task of improving the vehicle flight time by incorporating advanced battery technology and redesigning the turbofan for weight reduction and increasing efficiency.
The Phase Vision Quartz scanners that were used in the aircraft helped in quick part-to-CAD conversion. This made provision for quick prototyping, re-engineering and also test the changes of the fan before sending the finalized model to the manufacturer. In the words of Steve Potter, the development head at AESIR, the light scanners from Phase Vision helped in the designing of the aircraft by providing a higher surface resolution.
