CPX4

qUADROCOPTER micro UAV

Novadem

CPX4 quadrocopter micro-UAV from Novadem
The new CPX4 quadrocopter system was displayed by Novadem. This system is currently being evaluated by the DGA as a mini-UAV concept for future FELIN enhancement. This miniature four rotor platform was developed by the Institute National Polytechnique of Grenoble and the Novadem Company.

CPX4 ready to flyThe vehicle is stored in a small tube and can be assembled and prepared for mission within few seconds. Powered by a quadruple rotor driven by electrical motor, the system can hover for up to 30 minutes. CPX4 is equipped with a side camera (optional down looking sensor can also be mounted). The vehicle mounts an ultrasonic obstacle avoidance system, to safely avoid obstacles while flying or hovering near walls. The propulsion system uses differential compensation between the rotors to maintain position even under strong side winds.
