On display in the startup showdown area of XPONENTIAL 2017 will be the Halo unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which features a hybrid fixed-wing/rotary-wing design that enables it to hover to extended periods of time, allowing close-up inspections, even in remote locations. On the UAV is a high-resolution, downward facing camera for mapping and a lower-resolution, forward facing camera for video link. The company also has plans for a vision system that will provide a 360° panorama. The UAV itself has a 7.8 ft. wingspan and a 5.9 ft. length and weighs 4.4 lbs. Able to hover for 1.5 hours of fly forward for 2.5 hours, the Halo UAV is a vertical takeoff and landing model with a large rotor disk area that enables the hovering thrust efficiency to increase with the area of the rotor generating the thrust.
