The Skyfront Perimeter flies for hours and carries large payloads in a wide range of operating conditions.
- 5 hour endurance in hover
- 8.8 lb. (4 kg) payload capacity
- 15°F to 104°F (-10°C to 40°C) operation
- 25 mph wind gust tolerance
- 110 mile (177 km) flight range
- Fuel injected for operation at altitude
G2K™ Hybrid Propulsion System
The secret behind our long flight times is our proprietary fuel-injected G2K hybrid-electric power source. We convert gasoline into electricity in flight, giving you extreme endurance and redundant power.
Hybrid by Design
The fuel tanks, engine and exhaust are seamlessly integrated onto the vehicle to accommodate a sensitive payload and to streamline the vehicle. No clunky bolt on power source.
The Perimeter is designed around its hybrid-electric power source, from the ground control station to the fuselage. Operation is nearly identical to operating a traditional multirotor.
SMALL FORM FACTOR
Smallest weight (15 kg) and form factor of any same class vehicle.
ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION
Our fuel injected engines provide unprecedented reliability. No wasting time on engine tuning.
The Perimeter's engine automatically starts up when the vehicle is started. No fussing around with cumbersome drill starter motors or pull starts. The engine always starts when commanded.
COLD TEMPERATURE OPERATION
The Perimeter can operate in temperatures as low as 15°F (-10°C). Other hybrid-electric drones cannot operate safely in low temperature conditions.
From unboxing to flight, the total deployment time is only 5 minutes.
“As a service provider for large farms, Aker Technologies depends on drones with long flight times for crop monitoring at scale. We are impressed with Skyfront’s Tailwind drone, as it now makes many agricultural applications cost-effective.”
