QAE 108-100 - Mexican multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2012, the company «Quetzal Aeroespacial».

The unmanned aircraft QAE 108-100 began to be developed by a group of Mexican experts in the field of aircraft and aerospace engineering in 2010 year. The new device was primarily of scientific interest, in particular, it was supposed that thanks to its creation, it would be possible to design and develop more advanced and in-demand unmanned aerial vehicles, however, due to the fact that in 2012 the project successfully passed all the required tests, specialists from The company "Quetzal Aeroespacial" decided on a small improvement of the drones and the beginning of its mass production, in which the civil sphere was mainly interested.

Drone Quetzal Aeroespacial has a very narrow scope of its application, in particular, the unmanned aerial vehicle used for reconnaissance flights in difficult terrain, used to identify the drug routes is used to monitor the fire situation, is operated as a patrol and search tools.

As a means of surveillance, unmanned aircraft model m there is only one high-resolution electro-optical camera, however, this factor does not impair the popularity of drones, but rather the opposite, provides an apparatus and a lighter weight and lower cost.

Mexican drone QAE 108-100 is equipped with an electric motor, which allows the device to develop the maximum permissible speed of its repetition in 100 km \ h., While the maximum flight range of this device is limited 50 kilometers, with the possibility of being in the autonomous flight time of up to 1,5 hours.

On the basis of the UAV QAE 108-100 established three main options of the drone:

  • QAE 108-100 - Basic version of the device;
  • QAE 108-200 - Modification to perform advanced aerofotograficheskih works;
  • QAE 108-300 - Modification designed to perform specific tasks (equipped with a multispectral camera).
