The Griff 300 Mega-Drone
Drones have become a useful part of our modern day life; thanks to the fast developing technology that is not only transforming the way scientific research is done but also how they are used to improve life. These flying machines have been utilized in various industries from explorations,wildlife study to law enforcement processes.An average drone used in a majority of the aforementioned expeditions weighs no more than 55 pounds and can carry less than 2 kilograms of weight. The weight of course, varies according to the design of the drone and the size-which consequently affects the type of activity it can undertake. However, with Griff 300, these figures are a mere understatement compared to what this drone can achieve or is capable of doing.
What is Griff 300?
Griff 300 is a mega-drone developed by the Griff Aviation industry. It is unique in the sense that it can do what ordinary drones cannot. In addition to that it also has unique traits not common in its predecessors. The drone features 8 propellers and is capable of carrying over 500 pounds of weight. It can make aerial maneuvers for up to 45 minutes while on such weight capacity. It is truly an amazing innovation that will influence scientific research, law enforcement or any other field that depends on this technological gizmo. Furthermore, the drone is also made in a way that its weight can be customizable subject to the activity in question. Although, Griff Aviation has made the drone in a way that can be altered as per weight requirements, it also has other models with varying weight measurements-specifically model 125 and model 800.
The 300 figure in the drones name is not a random figure; neither was it chosen by chance.It refers to the weight capacity that the drone is capable of carrying. It is the gross lifting weight of this drone in kilograms. This translates to 496 lbs. Griff Aviation has plans to increase the carrying capacity of the drone in the following models or designs but as at the moment Griff 300 can carry 300 kilograms-an astonishing figure for a drone nevertheless. This drone is the first of its kind and rivals helicopters in terms of weight carrying capacity and if the forthcoming model (particularly the Griff 800) is anything to go by, then this drone will most definitely transform the future of Unmanned Aerial Surveillance.
Unmanned Aerial Surveillance
The implications of a drone that can lift sustain 300 kilograms on air is massive. The impact can both be positive and negative but nevertheless still transformative all the same. Picture, for instance, a drone being used in a fire rescue mission on a tall and delicate building. It can carry the needed supplies and tools essential to making the whole operation a success and would work with optimum efficiency comparable to if a human being was being used instead. This not only makes the whole operation faster but also protects the life of the person charged with the operation or task to be specific. The use of drones of this caliber, however, is not specific or confined to fire rescue missions. Other fields such as the construction industry, wind turbine maintenance operations and mountain rescue operations can also benefit from a drone with these specifications.
As mentioned before, a drone with these specifications and capabilities can have both positive and negative impacts. The former is considered a huge breakthrough but as for the latter, concerns have been raised and different aviation authorities have accredited this drone for commercial use and thus help address these concerns. To begin with, Griff Aviation already has approval of the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority with respect to the manufacture and safety of this drone. In addition to that, their operations are also compliant with the safety policies of the European Aviation Safety Agency with regards to this drone technology. By certifying this drone with more than one aviation regulatory body, Griff Aviation has not only achieved customer trust but has also become the first industry to do so in the professional civil aviation market.
The Future Looks Bright
The future seems to hold more interesting innovations in the aviation industry with particular reference the drone technology. Griff Aviation is the leading pacesetters not only with the Griff 300 but particularly with the Griff 800. The firm has revealed that plans are underway to construct highly sophisticated drones capable of carrying more than 800 kilograms and that the Griff 800 (should it be successfully launched) will only be the first model in a series of many. Should Griff aviation manage to launch these models, it will be the leading drone manufacturer in this highly transforming industry.
Griff 300 is a masterpiece that will bring positive changes and transformations in many fields and scientific operations. Rescue missions, wildlife study or research operations are just a tip of the ice berg. As more fields adopt this revolutionary technology, it will develop, improve and possibly overtake manned aerial surveillance systems that have always been preferred over drones over the years. If that is the case, the forthcoming models will ease their way into the market very easily.
