Atlas Dynamics is popular for designing drones that are mainly used by professional users. Their drones usually have a flight time of 4-5 hours and are used to address everyday problems and simplify everyday tasks. They are used for agriculture, emergency situations, security, and inspection, as they can stay in the air for longer periods of time than conventional consumer drones.
The Atlas Dynamics Nest’s main role is to refuel drones working in remote locations. This Nest is a charging hub which allows drones to land and refuel, enabling the drones to work for extended periods of time.
With Atlas Dynamics Nest, a drone can travel further without having to return to the home base to charge. Apart from enabling drones to travel further, Nest also offers a protective place where the drones can stay until when they are needed. This place where the drones sit can even be a remote location.
This usually enables a pilot to have constant drone readiness in remote areas that would take a while to get to. If the Atlas Pro requires a change of batteries after landing, the job will be done by a robotic arm allowing a drone to continue on its flight.
This station will be used by Atlas Blue-J drones which are fixed-wing drones used for long flights that take 5-6 hours. The drones are made of sturdy carbon fiber and have the ability to carry up to 9 kilograms of payload.
Atlas Dynamics model is new to the market, but those who created it have received positive feedback and ideas on what they need to add in newer versions. Most pilots have said that they would like to see a Nest that can meet the drones halfway when it is needed instead of having drones making it all the way to the Nest’s checkpoint.
If this is done, the Nest will be a traveling charging hub, something that we may be seeing in the near future as these additions are most likely necessary and definitely impressive. This will maximize the efficiency of autonomous flight paths and missions.
