Focus on the mission and leave the piloting to Cloudpilot. Operators can take advantage of Rotor’s round-the-clock piloting service that guarantees mission success at a compelling per-hour price point.
Cloudpilot is supervised by high-time, qualified pilots with experience in your mission. Onboard sensors and perception systems can see and avoid terrain and traffic even in poor visibility. Rotor will get the job done in even the most challenging conditions.
Cloudpilot is available across all stages of flight, removing the need for onboard crew or a remote pilot. The R550X's fly-by-wire control system and onboard automation guarantee safe flight across the entire envelope.
Eliminate concerns about dispatch readiness and crew time-outs — Cloudpilot is ready to fly whenever you need the aircraft. It's available all around the world -- anywhere with satellite or cellular communications service.
High levels of automation and shared pilot utilization helps to keep hourly rates affordable for R550X operators.
The R550X's communications gateway can simultaneously maintain 6 communications links of various types, making complete loss of link highly unlikely.
In case of loss of link, the aircraft can perform one of several predetermined maneuvers, according to operator preference. It can loiter and attempt to regain link, or it can return to base along predetermined routes and land safely.
The R550X uses a diversity of direct radio, LTE/cellular, and satellite links to connect to Cloudpilot. Field-deployed direct radio relays generally have ranges of between 10 and 50 miles, depending on the terrain and regulatory allowances. Where required, backhaul between field-deployed relays and Cloudpilot is completed using available communications infrastructure.
