The Astero system is an open architecture & modular system enabling easy integration of most mission sensors / payloads within the UAVs specifications.
The Astero is primarily built of carbon fiber, fiberglass, and nylon. These materials are all well-known from the aerospace industry and utilized for their special properties, specifically strength and flexibility. With an extraordinary durability the Astero can withstand approx. 50G impact on landing.
The Astero operates completely autonomously from takeoff to landing. Once the aircraft is hand-launched, it automatically flies its predefined mission and lands again at a predefined landing point. Manual control is also possible during the flight. The Astero does not just have a high performance, it is also safe to use and therefore well suited for night flying and flying beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).
