aOrion Heli‑E is an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) based on an electric helicopter. Small, yet powerful and reliable, aOrion Heli-E will change the way you think about drones.
Fully electric, autonomous, professional.
Heli-E for complex operations

Ready for complex operation

Our drone is a high-capacity modular platform compatible with multiple attachments and payloads for a variety of challenging missions.

Designed to overcome the limits, aOrion Heli‑E is an optimal drone option for long-endurance autonomous inspection, survey or video monitoring in completely different fields.

aOrion Heli‑E efficiently inspects extended infrastructure or remote facilities, as well as perform vertical inspections of high-rise structures that require more energy consumption."

High-precision navigation and simultaneous use of independent communication channels - radio and GSM - allow to make safe flights beyond the operator's visual line of sight (BVLOS).

The units and components of the helicopter are reliably protected from dust and water according to the international standard IP66, which allows it to fly in light rain or perform offshore missions.

Snow

Min. Temperature

Freeze (-30°C to 0°C) and moderate snowfall* are normal working conditions for aOrion Heli‑E. Electric batteries of the drone heat up in flight, and therefore do not have significant losses in their capacity at subzero temperatures.
*excluding icing zone, maximum precipitation - 1 mm/h

Night time

At night, as well as during the day, aOrion Heli‑E navigates through space using data from satellites and inertial system.

Wind
16 m/s
Max. Wind Load

aOrion Heli‑E can withstand gusty winds of up to 15 m/s due to aerodynamic features of its helicopter design.

Fog
Low Visibility

Poor visibility, be it light fog or smoke, will not hinder the mission because aOrion Heli-E uses satellite and inertial system data during the flight.

Smart power supply

High-capacity electric rechargeable batteries are what make aOrion Heli‑E an efficient and environmentally friendly solution.

Quickly installed, 2 smart rechargeable batteries display their charge level, voltage, and number of discharge-recharge cycles. They are charged from a standard 220V electrical outlet using a special case for charging and storing rechargeable batteries.

High redundancy with no 'single-point-of-failure'

Duplication of critical components and systems as well as onboard emergency rescue system ensure aOrion Heli-E's advanced safety record.

Flight control

All you need for flight control is a laptop with a special software and a data link.

The flight is totally under control of smart autopilot* with inertial navigation and computer vision including flying path optimization and protection from operator mistakes.

  • Radio signal backed up with mobile communication
  • Data transmission over the distance of up to 40 km and more (within line of sight if a directional antenna is used)
  • Protection from control hack with encrypted communication channel
*Different what-if scenarios can be customized depending on a task, environment, visibility of the drone during the flight, and type of a payload. As a UAS manufacturer, we are able to integrate additional equipment and replace communication system to customize the drone to your work tasks.

Quick assembly and launch

Deployable within 10-15 minutes

One person can easily assemble and launch aOrion Heli‑E. With a pre-planned and uploaded flight task and assembled equipment preparing the unmanned helicopter for takeoff takes less than a minute. And it does not take more than a couple of minutes to replace the rechargeable batteries for a repeat flight.

The current flight task is monitored using a MacOS, Linux or Windows portable computer. For your convenience, the unmanned helicopter can come with a ground control station in the form of a laptop with pre-installed specialized software and a wireless ground communication module.

The aOrion Heli-E's modularity and simplicity of design provide the user with low periodic maintenance costs and minimize helicopter downtime.
