DPI can recommend cost-effective payloads with cutting edge capabilities and advanced technologies appropriate for your application. Our tandem designs deliver a wide center of gravity envelope (CE), powerful lift, and multiple hard points that can carry payloads as internal and/or external loads. With DPI UAVs, you can mount multiple payloads in various configurations to meet your industry or application needs.

Multiple Hard Points
DPI designs are modular and flexible, allowing for a wide range of external cargo configurations. Depending on the DPI UAV, payloads can be carried in up to nine locations, including nose and rear of fuselage, under CG point, aft midships, port midships, starboard midships, above both front and aft rotors, and/or in an internal cargo area. Internal cargo areas include tie downs. External hard points accept standard interfaces for specific types of payloads.

Generous Power for Payloads
DPI UAV include on-board generators that provide up to 3 kW power for payloads, including broadcast-quality cameras.

On-Board Processing of Imagery and Data
DPI integrates payloads with the DPI UAV’s powerful on-board computer. Data is captured and processed onboard. Because DPI UAV include a high-bandwidth encrypted communications link, you can receive high quality, real-time imagery and data during your mission.
