AZIMUT 3

VTOL capabilities with 4 tilting rotors.

Short-range reconnaissance light aerial vector, backpack package, for a group of paratroopers, intervention forces, customs and paramilitary operations. The system is portable for two people. The performance comes from an optimized aerodynamic design associated with a structure in high-tech composite materials and a very low power supply for cruising speed. The system can take off and land vertically thanks to the 4 rotors oriented vertically (like a multicopter), and the system makes a transition to the classic airplane mode thanks to a 90 degree rotation of the rotors. The system is not catapulted.

Applications: Light short-range reconnaissance vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing, then flight as a powered glider thanks to its 4 tilting rotors at 90 degrees.
