Quaternion Qt-1 - American multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle, designed by «Quaternion Aerospace».

The multi-purpose unmanned aircraft of the Quaternion Qt-1 model is intended for conducting reconnaissance, search and observation flights, conducting search operations, monitoring the environment and fire hazard conditions. Initially, this drone was operated exclusively as a research aircraft, and its serial production was not expected, but due to the interest shown, the model of the aircraft was optimized, and a little later it was completely launched into mass production, which, however, did not last long Because of the appearance of more practical aircraft in this plan.

American multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle model Quaternion Qt-1 has a fairly compact dimensions, in particular, the device has a fuselage length equal to 2 meters 80 centimeters, while the magnitude of the air means the wings of 2 meters 93 centimeters, which enables the system not only high aerodynamic performance, but also the relative simplicity of its operation, in particular, we are talking about a small take-off weight of the drone.

As a means of monitoring and surveillance, unmanned aircraft model Quaternion Qt-1 can be used electro-optical, infrared and multi-spectral camera, at the same time, if necessary, the drone can also be arranged and additional sensors, provides information on the environment (temperature, pressure and etc.).

Powerplant unmanned Quaternion Qt-1 air means is represented by one piston twin engine, which allows the device to accelerate to the maximum speed of its movement in 120 km \ h., At a maximum range of flight in 200 kilometers.
