Topcon Falcon 8 Overview
The Topcon Falcon 8 powered by Ascending Technologies is a rotary-wing UAS designed for inspection and monitoring or survey and mapping applications, depending on which camera payloads are used. Rotary-wing UASs are best applied to smaller scale projects and those for which ?exibility for take-off and landing or oblique perspective is required. The Falcon 8 offers the ?exibility to get into small spaces and compromising situations often presented in inspection and monitoring applications. Due to its best-in-class sensors, active vibration damping and actively compensating camera mount, the Falcon 8 is well suited for smaller mapping and inspection projects up to 35 hectares that require high resolution imaging.
The Falcon 8 InspectionPRO model Payload consists of an RGB camera and IR sensor (Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ71 + FLIR TAU 640) or the video camcorder (Sony HDR-PJ810E) for inspection and monitoring applications.
