Hercules has a patent-pending design that is optimized to fly at higher airspeed than other multi-rotors and comes standard with an inexpensive camera turret. AAC will also integrated more advanced camera systems, or leave the payload bays empty, upon customer request. Additionally, Hercules is designed with a modular nose payload bay and a modular center bay on the belly of the aircraft, which makes payload integration easier. Hercules, according to AAC, can be deployed in such applications as precision agriculture, defense, infrastructure inspection, and environmental monitoring.
