The ATLAS ppX is currently the most compact member of the C-ASTRAL UAS family weighing only 2.3 kg. Developed through a decade of exploitation experience by C-ASTRAL X-WORKS, this hand launched system has a tactical heritage and can carry multiple modular sensors for precise PPK supported photogrammetry, multispectral and thermal remote sensing.

The industry leading unmanned aircraft systems are electrically powered and able to achieve superior stability and endurance through unique advanced Blended Wing Body airframe aerodynamics.

We fly Bramor ppX systems and have mapped corridors of more than 3000 km in length, but want to have a similar capability in a smaller package. This is why we are extremely excited to be one of the first ATLAS ppX users. This is clearly the best small fixed-wing UAS for mapping in the world.

Atlas ppX

Small and easy to operate, yet capable of compleating larger missions. Atlas allows the operator to be globally present in the surveying market!

The ATLAS ppX excels with a modular architecture that enables quick reconfigurations and multiple functionalities in a light, compact easily transportable package that brings it to the front of the class of very small fixed wing systems. There is no other small, hand-launched/bungee launched system on the market with the ATLAS endurance, sensor modularity, UTM integration capabilities, safety features, aircraft grade fail safes and a heritage, that includes day to day operations in the world's most extreme environments, from the Arctic to the deserts and the jungles of South/Central America, Africa and Southeast Asia.

With the ATLAS, high resolution/extreme ground sampling distance remote sensing ANYWHERE is becoming a reality.

The ATLAS ppX workflow is completely comparable to the larger BRAMOR system, but the portability of the system enables its quick deployment almost anywhere on the planet.

Rugged, water-resistant, aerospace grade, safe and easy to operate.
