THE ALTURA ZENITH UAV.  FLY TOMORROW’S INNOVATION TODAY

The Altura Zenith sets a precedent for the design of unmanned aircraft systems, by combining state of the art technology with remarkably flat, compact and lightweight design. Starting from scratch enabled the generation of a radically novel idea: developing a multi-rotor aircraft system that can meet a wide variety of application requirements without compromising on design.

UNIQUE DESIGN - BEYOND THE CUTTING EDGE

Performance and beauty are the cornerstones of the Altura Zenith. The structure was designed to enclose electrical components of the highest quality in a streamlined manner. Hidden within a super flat design, the Zenith carries a 10.000 or 20.000 mAh battery, which facilitates up to 35 minutes of flight time with total payloads of up to 1.2 kg for the ATX4 and 2.9 kg for the ATX8. All parts of the Zenith are carefully selected to form the best-balanced aircraft of today. Join the best, fly Zenith.

ALTURA GROUND CONTROL SYSTEM

The Altura Ground Control System (GCS) is one of a kind. All of its capabilities are featured on a simple overview to facilitate the control of the entire system. The pilot can manually control the position of the system and operate its payload with unparalleled ease. On an elegant tablet attached to the GCS the pilot operates our in-house app for autonomous navigation, waypoint triangulation and repetitive flight patterns

 

ALL IN ONE - LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT DESIGN

All of the Zenith’s functions are easily controlled with the ergonomic design of the ground control station (GCS) and the GCS tablet app. This set up guarantees ease of use for an effective deployment of the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). The operator can simultaneously manoeuvre the system and manage the GCS. All of the Zenith’s operations are within one simple touch

 

THE ALTURA GCS APP

Aerialtronics spends a lot of time optimising system controls. The Altura GCS app manages both autonomous navigation as well as fully manual flights easily. Pilots can opt to navigate via waypoint or repetitive flight patterns. The interface is designed to enable flying for everyone within a couple of hours of training.

AIRCRAFT TELEMETRY & STATUS

The Altura GCS app provides a detailed overview of the aircraft status such as location, battery info and GPS

 

 

PHOTOGRAMMETRY & MAPPING

Easily pre-define flight grids, after launching the Zenith, software takes control, navigates and takes pictures according to grid.

AUTOMATE WITH WAYPOINTS

Fly autonomously along pre-defined flight paths and independently gather the required data

 

 

AIRCRAFT HEADING 

LOCK

This mode will cause the Zenith to remember which direction is “forward” so you don’t have to worry about the aircraft heading during flight

FLYING MODES - DOG MODE & FOLLOW ME

The Altura Zenith autonomously follows and films you when carrying GPS enabled GCS tablet

 

 

VIRTUAL FENCE & SAFE ZONES

The Zenith can be flown within its virtual shelter of which it can’t leave the virtual pre-defined flight radius or maximum altitude

AUTO TAKE-OFF & LANDING

Do not worry about take-off and landing.  It is now possible to precisely start, take-off and land the Zenith by a flick of a switch

 

AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATION

The Altura GCS app enables you to adjust functions such as payload settings, cruise-speed, max-altitude and flight distance

Joystick RF control

For optimal control

All systems are equipped with an RF radio control module that enables full manual control by a single pilot. The operator can manage the flight, payload or camera functions from the ground. This module is ideal for high-end photography or videography, which requires precise handling. Additionally, the module offers functions such as GPS position-hold, altitude control, go-home, auto-landing and camera control functions.

 

Dual operation

Focus on flight as well as payload

In the dual operation mode, the system is configured with a second control unit to facilitate a focus on both the flight as well as the payload configuration. This allows the users to perform safe, steady flights while delivering optimal data or imagery.

MANUAL CONTROL

Pilots can manually adjust the flight direction, cruise speed and have full control on all payload features from the ground

GPS ASSISTED FLIGHTS

The pre-programmed switches allow the pilot to switch between various flight modes, such as GPS/Altitude hold, coming home and landing

AIRCRAFT TELEMETRY & STATUS

The RF controller is provided with an build-in LCD status monitor, which provides you with the most important aircraft status information

PAYLOD OR CAMERA CONTROL

Pilots can remotely adjust the payload tilt and panning angle and have full control on all payload features from the ground at the same time

PAYLOAD OPTIONS

FIT ANY PAYLOAD YOU PREFER

The Zenith can be equipped with a wide variety of payloads, such as DSLR or cinema cameras, special sensors like thermal imaging, UV or multispectral cameras, sniffers and microphones. There are no restrictions in flexibility. You can fit any camera you choose. The Zenith will suit your application.

 

CLICK ’N GO PAYLOAD GIMBALS

Aerialtronics is a preferred supplier of the famous Photo Higher servo-driven gimbals, which are developed in New Zealand. Photo Higher provides maximum flexibility due to the compatibility of its AV200 and AV130 gimbals with medium and large-sized cameras. The clever servo-driven propulsion systems enable maximum image stability without having to adjust for the centre point of gravity. The quality of your images is key. Therefore, stability is a must. The 2- and 3- axis brushless stabilised gimbals are especially developed for small to intermediate sized cameras that weigh up to 1 kg. Even cameras that lack proper optical (image) stabilisation, like thermal cameras, can provide stabilised images with the brushless gimbal. The stable recordings alleviate the need for post stabilisation and post-production, which leads to a significant time save.

A WORLD OF APPLICATIONS, A WIDE VARIETY OF SENSORS

THERMAL VISION SENSORS

With advanced thermal and vision cameras, the UAS records vast amounts of data for optimal workflow solutions. Developed by Aerialtronics, The Dupla Vista allows the pilot to switch between infrared thermal and vision cameras for specialist missions. This technology enables the pilot to timely evaluate, analyse and interpret data for tangible results.

 

 

 

MULTISPECTRAL

Impressive Agriculture data at your fingertips

The Multispectral sensor is an advanced, lightweight, multispectral camera optimized for use with the Altura Zenith. By combining the multispectral sensor with the Zenith, we provide accurate multi-band data for agricultural remote sensing solutions. The applications of the multispectral camera provide new perspectives on the health of crops. Agronomists can effectively detect and manage areas that need more attention for optimal output.

 

 

 

 

SNIFFER / VOC MONITOR

The most advanced VOC capabilities on the market

The VOC monitor is an advanced piece of technology that can be used for industrial hygiene, detection of gas leaks and hazardous materials. It is equipped with a photoionization detector with a detection range between 0-15.00 ppm, a three-second response time, embedded correction factors for more than 200 compounds, and a unique auto-cleaning sensor technology. The VOC monitor can analyse more chemicals at an unparalleled speed. Thanks to its dust-tight and waterproof casing, it can even be deployed in the harshest conditions.

PHOTO CAMERAS / VIDEO CAMERAS

WIDEST SENSOR RANGE ON UAV MARKET

Altura Zenith unmanned aircraft system offers the perfect solution for stable aerial photography and film. The gimbal empowers the photographer or cinema director to shoot impressively stable pictures. Even if the camera attached to the gimbal is not equipped with a stabiliser option, it will shoot remarkably steady images. The unmanned aircraft system can fly up to 45min in conditions varying between heavy rain, beautiful sunshine, freezing snow and strong winds. At all times, the pilot can control the UAS and payload with hawk eye precision.
