  • Flight time – 3hrs
  • Range – up to 100kms
  • Payload – 1.5 to 3kgs
  • Wingspan – 3.2m
  • Communications – up to 25Mbps
  • Speed – 100km/h

The ATLAS-V UAS has a maximum cruising speed of 100km/h and the maximum operating altitude is 3000m. The UAS endurance is up to 3 hours. It has an empty weight of 5.5kg, take-off weight of 12kg and maximum payload carrying capacity of 3.0 kg.

Reduced RF Interference:

Specifically designed to provide reduced Electronic Magnetic Interference (EMI) of up to 70% compared to other designs, the ATLAS-V ensures that you get full value of your digital datalink and allowing the integration of electronically-sensitive payloads. Its robust navigational system further enhances the operational capability, safety and reliability.

Persistent and Pervasive Surveillance:

The silent electrical propulsion and long range real-time feedback link make this platform ideal to provide persistent, and stealthy, ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), over your aircraft’s full area of coverage (both day and night). This long range video feedback can further be broadcasted to multiple ground teams or command stations.

Safer infrastructure inspections:

Safety is an important aspect when conducting inspections of major infrastructures such as oil refineries, wind farms, pipelines inspections, factories, etc, where combustion engines provide a higher level of risk. etc. Electrically propelled UAVs provide an effective, as well as cleaner, alternative.

The ATLAS-V is a fixed-wing VTOL unmanned aerial system (UAS) designed and manufactured by NEXTECH, to support multiple missions of small tactical military units as well as search-and-rescue (SAR) teams. The purpose-built propulsion system, complemented by extended payload options and rapid payload integration, offers optimised performance.

Endurance and Range:

The ATLAS-V has been carefully designed to provide the ideal balance between Endurance, of up to 3 hours, and Range, of up to 100kms.

Flight Characteristics:

The VTOL capabilities means that there is no need for launch or recovery equipment nor a run way of hundreds of meters.
The aircraft is able to take-off vertically to the required altitude and then transition into a fixed wing for forward flight while it can transition back for hovering, or landing when required. It is further aerodynamically designed for enhanced manoeuvrability and an improved ability to withstand very windy conditions.
With the best of both worlds it is not necessary to choose between a fixed wing and a multi-rotor anymore.


The ALTLAS-V accommodates various multiple/various payloads including high-resolution mapping systems to advanced surveillance EO/IR cameras with object tracking and more.

Optimised design:

By using the correct mix of carbon fibre and fibreglass materials, the aircraft design achieves the optimal combination of endurance and range ensuring that electronically sensitive payloads and communication systems can achieve maximum performance.

Handling and Transport:

The compact modular design means that the aircraft can be rapidly assembled and deployed, by one person, in under 2 minutes. The lightweight, compact carry case make carrying and handling the aircraft securely during travelling, a breeze.

Petrol Option:

For applications that require longer endurance a petrol propulsion option is also available.

ATLAS-V Applications:

  • Security and Surveillance: silent electrical propulsion with 2 EO/IR dual sensor gimbal
    system, object detection and tracking, video recording – ideally suited for stealthy security and
    surveillance applications, day or night.
  • Inspection and Detection: safe inspections of long range infrastructure installations.
  • As well as a variety of other applications from Mapping to Agriculture.
