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.

The American multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle of the Quaternion Qt-1 model has rather compact dimensions, in particular, the device has a fuselage length equal to 2 meters 80 centimeters, while the wingspan of this aircraft is 2 meters 93 centimeters, which provides the device not only with high aerodynamic indicators, but also the relative ease 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.
