uAvionix today announced that Beluga, a state-of-the-art family of drones designed by Italian company Eurolink Systems, has completed its integration of various avionics from the uAvionix certifiable low-SWaP ecosystem, including the George G3 autopilot, microLink CNPC radio system, and truFYX EXT GPS.
Beluga™ is a new generation of small UAS (sUAS), the result of 3 years of design and development with a strong focus on State-of-the-Art technology available for each vital component. The Beluga sUAS is designed to perform a wide variety of tasks including medical transportation, precision farming, search & rescue, and last-mile delivery.
