HorseSHU Unmanned Aerial System
ONE PLATFORM: MULTIPLE MISSIONS
HorseSHU's design is inspired by the shape of the horseshoe crab (and some think it looks like a turtle!) and also by aviation history, the Vought V-173 a.k.a. the "Flying Pancake" of the 1940s. The HorseSHU is a complete Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) solution for multiple applications. The HorseSHU employs a patent-pending tilt nacelle design that combines Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) and hover capabilities of a multi-rotor with the fast and efficient forward flight capabilities of an airplane into one practical platform. The result is a UAV with unrivaled aerodynamic characteristics and a system that is more practical than conventional fixed-wing aircraft and more capable than multi-copters.
