What is UAV?

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), also known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. A key feature of UAV is its autonomy, meaning that no pilot intervention since take off required. The variety of UAV applications are mainly focused on aerial photography, videography and monitoring.

What is SmartAP?

SmartAP Autopilot is the next generation flight control system for multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles capable of fully autonomous flight. It has a powerful microcontroller STM32F4 from STMicroelectronics, 9-axis Inertial Measurement Unit and the latest GPS receiver from UBlox integrated onboard. SmartAP supports any type of multirotor UAV with outstanding navigation and control precision. Unlike our competitors SmartAP was developed using the latest electronic components available at the moment, which allowed us to achieve such amazing results.
