The highly modular Beluga drone can be fitted with 2.5-litre or 14-litre capacity cargo bays for delivery and logistics. It can also be equipped with a custom-engineered gimbal that can host a variety of different sensors and payloads, including:
- EO/IR systems
- Multispectral & hyperspectral sensors
- LiDAR scanners
- RF catchers
Beluga features built-in artificial intelligence capabilities that enable enhanced obstacle and collision avoidance capabilities as well as a suite of image recognition and computer vision features. Thanks to the system’s modular architecture, GPUs can be quickly swapped out, enabling users to keep up with rapidly evolving technology and provide their platform with more computing power.
Beluga can also be equipped with multiple communications interfaces, including radios, 4G and 5G cellular modems and SATCOM, enabling long-range BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) operations. Civilian and military Mode A/C/S transponders can also be installed, providing enhanced safety and airspace awareness and complying with DO-178C Level C, DO254 Level C, DO-160G and other standards.
