Arator 5B

Arator 5B

Already know the Arator 5B of XMobots? A pioneer in unmanned aircraft certification, XMobots® is the first company in Brazil to have equipment for flights over 400 feet and with a radius of more than 500m, authorized by ANAC. This condition allows the mapping of up to 800 hectares per flight (GSD = 10cm), generating high productivity and cost reduction for customers who demand maximum profitability in drone mapping.

In the version authorized by ANAC to fly above 400 feet, the Arator has structural changes such as the insertion of visible LEDs up to a distance of 2 km from the operator, besides requiring special training for operation above 400 feet and CAER emission ( RPA Certificate of Special Airworthiness). Called the 2VLOS upgrade, this “package” can be purchased at the time of purchase of the Arator 5B, or in a second moment, as an upgrade.

It’s not just a drone. It’s an Arator.

Arator 5B, the most compact drone in XMobots®, is ideal for mapping areas up to 1,000 hectares in size. Features such as high versatility, lean flight system, ability to ship cameras with 24MP APS-C sensors (unusual in the same category), low maintenance rate and aeronautical design in accordance with ANAC legislation, have made Arator one of the drones of the country, consolidating its vocation of “Brazilian drone of the agribusiness”.

Features of the 5B Arator

The XMobots portable drone, which inherits all the high technology of the brand’s larger drones, has features such as:

ROBUSTNESS

Hull made of kevlar fiber, the same used in bullet-proof vests. It has enough resilience to withstand the impacts inherent in drone operations.

PROTECTION

Extruded parachute landing, avoiding damage to camera lens or hull – which is common in belly bumps.

AUTO PILOT

The XMobots auto pilot is already in its fourth generation. With 1GHz processing, it runs RTOS QNX with the software developed using the MDD (model driven development) the same used by Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.

XPLANNER

XMobots XPlanner is the project planning software that facilitates the planning, execution and post-processing of the flight.

LEAN SYSTEM

Arator, GDT and notebook connected via wi-fi.

HAND LAUNCH

Automatic launch by hand launch, eliminating the catapult or bungee mount for launch.

In addition to the 2VLOS version, the Arator 5B is available in the MA and HA configurations. Check out:

Arator MA

For XMobots, a good product is one that generates a high level of profitability for its customers. Always thinking about the best results, in August 2018, the company launched the MA (Medium Accuracy) technology, already in the entry version of Arator 5B. The MA System comprises the onboard computer MA with RTK GPS + Glonass L1, guaranteeing decimetric accuracy in the drone mapping. The XMobots MA System is compatible with RTK technology shipped on most drones manufactured in Brazil, which use RTK GPS + Glonass only on the L1 frequency. In Arator, this technology is already present in the configuration of entrance of the equipment, in the best cost-benefit relation of the Brazilian market.

MA1M3

With high performance and excellent geometric quality to obtaining images in the visible spectrum, the 1M3 camera with APS-C sensor of 24 mp resolution in the RGB spectrum is boarded in the fuselage. It is isolated from dirt and with easy access to the memory card.
This payload comes with all power, calibration, trigger and georeferencing devices, transforming the camera into an aerial photogrammetric camera.

Mirrorless camera

APS-C sensor with 3.9m pixel pitch and 3-line linescan technology (blue, green and red)

Minimum resolution of 24.3 mp

16mm fixed focal length

Minimum shutter of 1/4000

MA1M5

After almost two years of development, XMobots brings to the market the multispectral version of Arator, boarded with the exclusive xM5 camera. With the 5 bands of the spectrum (R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge), the XMobots camera differs from the multi-spectral cameras developed for drone market by combining high radiometric and geometric quality. All this thanks to the APS-C CMOS sensor of 24mp with 6,000 horizontal pixels (in conventional cameras, the sensors usually have 1,000 horizontal pixels). The 1M5 camera bands are captured separately, allowing a single flight to generate RGB, Nir and RedEdge orthophotos.
In addition, the 1M5 camera is integrated to the MA system, guaranteeing decimetrical accuracy also in multispectral bands.

Minimum resolution of 24.3 mp

Camera power supply devices by RPA, trigger and automatic synchronization for georeferencing

CMOS sensor (APSC) 3: 2 or higher, with 3.9 pixel pitch and linescan technology

HA Technology

With HA (High Accuracy) technology, collection of control points in the field has become a thing of the past. Available in the Arator 5B, the system developed by XMobots allows the generation of 3D models and orthophotos with accuracy of up to 2cm, without need of collection of control points.

As the only Brazilian company and one of the few in the world to have this innovation embedded on your drones, XMobots has developed HA technology thinking about clients that require maximum productivity and cost reduction in drone mapping, generating great results that contribute to the best decisions.

As a result, digital surface models, digital terrain models, contours, orthophotos and other imaging products are generated with planimetric accuracy of 1 to 3 times GSD (Ground Sample Distance) and altimetric 2 to 5 times GSD.

HA1M3

In this configuration, the 1M3 camera is integrated with HA technology. With 24mp of resolution in the RGB spectrum, it comes embedded in the fuselage of Arator, being isolated from dirt and with easy access to the memory card.
This payload comes with all power, calibration, trigger and georeferencing devices, transforming the camera into an aerial photogrammetric camera.

HA1M5

In this unprecedented fixed-wing drone configuration, HA technology is integrated into the 1M5 multispectral camera, developed by XMobots. For the first time in the market of drones, this innovation allows to obtain multispectral images with positional accuracy of a few centimeters, besides high geometric and radiometric quality.
The 1M5 camera contains 5 spectrum bands (R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge), captured separately by an APS-C CMOS sensor of 24mp. In this way, in a single flight it is possible to obtain orthophotos RGB, Nir and RedEdge with high accuracy.
