Dark Pulse, Inc. (OTC Markets: DPLS) (“DarkPulse” and the “Company”), a technology company focused on the manufacture, sale, installation, and monitoring of laser sensing systems based on its patented BOTDA dark-pulse sensor technology (the “DarkPulse Technology”) which provides a data stream of critical metrics for assessing the health and security of infrastructure, today announced its subsidiary, TerraData Unmanned, has successfully delivered a custom, all electric, NDAA compliant drone platform configuration to a customer that offers more than 60 minute flight times with 1.5kg of payload – an industry first.
DarkPulse subsidiary, TerraData Unmanned, has successfully delivered a custom drone platform per a customer’s specifications which exceeds current industry offering by more than 30 minutes considering the usable payload weight. The TerraData team, led by Justin Dee, has built a Quad Copter drone with 1.5KG payload capabilities at more than 60 minutes of continuous flight. This cutting-edge design is a combination of proprietary software and hardware. The custom platform offers NDAA compliant autopilot, communications links, TSO Certified GPS unit and ground control station. Future designs include integrating RTK for mapping, methane detectors, and true terrain following capabilities. There are also improvements scheduled that are intended to further extend the endurance and provide over 4KG of payload capacity, not including batteries.
DarkPulse is leveraging uncommon technology both developed and vetted by TerraData including innovative battery chemistry, cutting edge propeller design, extremely efficient speed controllers, and combinations of titanium and carbon fiber in the airframe to achieve 60 minute or more flight capabilities. The technology utilized for this design also allows for flight batteries to charge in one half the amount of time needed for traditional lithium polymer batteries. This feature, along with the long endurance capability, allows for more efficient workflows compared to operations conducted with current multirotor offerings.
“Designing and delivering cutting edge drone technology to our customer is a giant leap forward for the commercial drone industry and DarkPulse’s market strategy with respect to “eye in the sky” drone platform capabilities,” said DarkPulse CEO, Dennis O’Leary. “This successful deployment aligns with the Company’s acquisition of TJM Electronics West for the manufacturing our proprietary PDBs (power distribution boards), and ESCs (electronic speed controllers) and the assembly and distribution of the drones themselves.”
