eVTOL – SCORPION™
It is not only the optics that the Scorpion has in common with its animal fellow. Like the Vector it is also optimized for use in adverse conditions with extreme temperatures. The centerpiece is identical to the fixed-wing Vector UAV and is characterized with live video data link for various mission scenarios. Scorpion impresses with its HD data link with an operating range of up to 15+ km. As a tri-copter it is ideal for smaller-scale and stationary use, for example in densely built-up areas. The maximum flight time of 45 minutes provides many applications for Scorpion. The 2in1 design allows you to quickly transform Scorpion into Vector and back depending on the task being performed.

GIMBAL PAYLOAD – INTELLIGENCE IN THE SKY
In order to provide relevant intelligence for better decision making we integrate high-quality sensors with powerful optics while maintaining minimum size and weight. As a result we obtain a state of the art stability combined with unmatched robustness. Thanks to its modular concept, the front section of Vector & Scorpion can be equipped with different payloads.
All sensor changes are done by simply replacing the complete payload compartment in a matter of seconds. No tools required. Observing targets at day and night with IR capability (EO/IR option) ensures the versatility of performing tasks. Reading license plates at up to 700m distance with EO 30x zoom option or marking targets at night with IR illuminator (laser option) increases the success of operations. Quantum-Systems is continually working on increasing the number of compatible sensors. As the Vector and Scorpion user family grows, there will be more and more innovative and custom sensors. Chemical detection, ground penetrating low energy radar, LiDAR or LTE-cell are some that Quantum-Systems’ crew is working on. The message is: the versatility of your platform will grow over time

MESH IP ENCRYPTED DATA LINK
Radio communication, which meets the requirements of modern applications, especially in the military sector, today requires more range, data throughput and reliability than ever before. Self-healing, digital link management and automatic rerouting are no longer just options. They are a must. That is why Quantum-Systems uses a state of the art encrypted mesh IP link which delivers unprecedented performance never seen before in challenging environments.
The data link hardware consists of a robust handheld unit on the ground and an OEM module onboard the UAV. It is possible to increase the range of sector antennas to over 25 km. The system does not require a tracking antenna or moving parts.
This configuration allows streaming data with a speed of 10 Mb/s and AES 128/256 bit encryption, as well as video range and video and command & control range up to over 25 km (sector antennas).
The hardware is optimized for tactical applications and comes with durable IP 67-protected housings. Advanced MIMO mesh network technology is used. The data link control is fully integrated with QBase 3D, including link and power management.
TRANSPORT CASE & BACKPACK
After disassembly, Scorpion and Vector can be transported safely and comfortably by one person. Just a few steps are needed to get the systems ready for use. As standard, the transport case has external dimensions of 850x470x280 mm. It has an IP67 certificate (underwater and floating) and therefore will work in the most adverse conditions. Optionally, it is also possible to use the all-terrain backpack.
