AEE Technology Inc., a leader in commercial drone technology, has announced the introduction of its Mach 6 commercial unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The AEE Mach 6 features a flight time of up to 50 minutes (depending on payload configuration) and three smart payload ports, including two smart accessory shoes (SAS). The Mach 6 can carry a payload of 13.2 pounds.

“By incorporating long flight times while carrying three payloads, the AEE Mach 6 adds key benefits to a wide range of critical commercial drone operations” says Mike Kahn, AEE chief marketing officer.

The Mach 6 offers a wide range of camera payloads configurations available from the AEE DATF Dual Thermal RGB payload to the DATE 24MP APSC Mapping Camera. Also available for the two accessory shoes are multiple Megaphone (PA systems) like the new AEE Super Thunderhorn with an effective range of a mile, as well as the new AEE Spotlight.

Additionally, through AEE's newly announced partnership with Schiller Americas, the Mach 6 can carry Schiller’s wide range of automated external defibrillators (AED).

Some highlights of the Mach 6 include: all weather stable hexcopter design, up to 50-minute flight times, up to 13.2 pounds of lift capability, up to 7-mile range, collapsible design for easy transport, smart battery design, millimeter radar for collision avoidance, as well as optional RTK compatibility for precision mapping missions.

The Mach 6 comes bundled with AEE’s advanced ground station controller (Y12) with over 2TB of solid-state memory on board. AEE can configure unique systems customized to fulfill a wide range of mission profiles.
