An incomparable drone. With its first version launched in 2012, Nauru presents a trajectory of milestones and resilience, collecting many “first places”, such as the first RPA to fly over Amazon, the first RPA to get a CAVE (Certificado de Autorização de Voo Experimental – Certificate of Authorization for Experimental Flight) issued by ANAC and the first VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) hybrid drone developed in Brazil. Reflex of the strength present in XMobots´ DNA, Nauru represents the point where the company´s past meets its present, disrupting the innovation boundaries.
Developed for BVLOS (Beyong Visual Line Of Sight) operations, Nauru presents an extraordinary 4-hours of flight autonomy. Its high capacity of payload allows the drone to be embedded simultaneously with 1 mapping sensor + an ISR system (for surveillance applications), becoming a powerful too in Security & Defense missions.
All these features in a platform that combines what is best from both drone technologies: the maneuverability of a rotating wing drone and the autonomy of a fixed-wing one, allowing to take off and to land in hostile environments and confined areas. A brave warrior, ready to execute highly strategic applications.

To map large areas with accuracy has never been so easy. Just like in other models manufactured by XMobots, Nauru 500C presents the RTK HAL technology (High Accuracy Low Cost) factory integrated, allowing its users to execute, in a safe and efficient way, big projects that require high accuracy.
Compatible to other GNSS offered in the market
Compatible to the XRTK 184B
Thanks to its high-resolution camera, Nauru can fly higher altitude and still map long areas with a low GSD (Ground Sample Distance). With the XM3 sensor factory embedded, Nauru captures 24-Mpix-resolution images, using an APS-C sensor and a 16-mm fix lens.

7,500 hectares/flight (10cm GSD / 60% side overlay)
Como upgrade, o Nauru também pode ser equipado com os sensores multiespectrais desenvolvidos pela equipe de P&D da XMobots: XMC (RGB e Nir) e XM5 (RGB, Nir e RedEdge).
XMC is a multispectral camera developed specifically for the Sugarcane solution. Presenting 4 bands, its the only sensor developed specifically for the spectral signature of the sugarcane, allowing the generation of vegetative indices like NDVI, enabling additional functionalities in the XFarming software.
XMC has a high yield (mapped hectares by flight) thanks to its APS-C sensor, and it´s integrated to the HAL and HAG technologies, assuring the multispectral mapping with centimetric positional accuracy.

Getting an upgrade, Nauru can also be equiped with the multispectral sensors developed by XMobots´ R&D team: XMC (RGB and Nir) and XM5 (RGB, Nir and RedEdge).
Brazil is one of the greatest agricultural producers in the world, staying at the top of world production rankings for different cultures, such as soy, corn, cotton, among others. In such extensive agricultural areas like the grain cultures, it doesn´t make sense to use the multispectral cameras with small sensors, 1.000 horizontal pixels, for example.
Large areas demand sensors that can guarantee high yield in the aerial imaging with drones. This is XM5 camera, XMobots´ 5-band multispectral solution that captures images using R, G, B, Nir and RedEdge bands simultaneously, allowing the generation of a great variety of vegetative indices, NDVI and NDRE among them.

Possibilities of multiple applications
One of the greatest XMobots´ innovations for Nauru 500C is its 2MX oblique cameras system. Available for XM3, XMC and XM5 sensors, the technology was developed to enable the simultaneous embedding of 2 cameras in the drone, duplicating the number of mapped hectares by flight. With this upgrade, Nauru is able to map 15,000 hectares in a single flight (10cm GSD and 60% side overlay), mapping, in a short period of time, something that was impossible before.
2MX technology is available in the versions:
2M3 (2 XM3 oblique sensors)
2MC (2 XMC oblique sensors)
2M5 (2 XM5 oblique sensors)
An equipment like Nauru requires efficiency in all stages of the flight. That´s why XMobots worked hard in the evolution of its drones and of all technologies that make part of the RPA system.
One of them is XPlanner, like Nauru, that also evolved throughout the years.
Today the flight planning software of XMobots consists in an agile, secure and intuitive platform, contributing to the user experience to be the best possible. This is efficiency from side to side.

Terrain visualization in 3D
Nauru´s 60-km range says it all: XMobots´ super drone was projected for high-level of complexity missions. Therefore, it´s essential to be manufactured in order to become a highly robust, safe and trustworthy aircraft.
Manufactured with high performance materials, Nauru was projected to face the most variable situations in the field, resisting bravely from common weather conditions to hostile environment.
100% robotic technology. Among the technologies present in Nauru, there´s the XMB Autopilot, that runs RTOS QNX with developed software using MDD (Model Driven Development), state of art in aeronautical technology, also used in companies like Airbus, Boeing and Embraer.
