Sophisticated power analyser helps drone maker accelerate motor system testing

04 November 2019

The Yokogawa WT1800E Power Analyser is being used by Atmos UAV to optimise the range, efficiency and safety of Marlyn, the world’s first drone to combine Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) and forward flight in a fully autonomous way.

Like a fixed wing drone, Marlyn is capable of high-speed flight, which typically enables it to survey an area of 12 square kilometres in a single flight, while the VTOL capability allows it to be launched from almost anywhere. This flying performance means that surveyors can dramatically reduce the required flying time, and thus achieve higher productivity and lower operating costs. 

Benefiting from the ability to operate safely and reliably in wind speeds up to 28mph, Marlyn is being used throughout the world to survey, map, and gather geospatial data in the mining, agriculture, forestry and construction industries, and by government agencies.
