XAG® XMission® Multifunctional UAS
The Key to “Sky City”
Building on a wealth of cutting-edge expertise and proven innovations, XAG XMission is an industrial level multifunctional Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). Sophisticated design and state-of-the-art manufacturing process lay the foundation for a light, portable and powerful drone platform, ready to use right out of the box. The SUPERX3 PRO RTK flight control system provides XMission with centimetre-level navigation for fully autonomous flights in various control schemes, and allows third party payloads to meet specific demands of different applications
Light & Foldable
RTK Precise Positioning
Fully Autonomous Flight
Light, Handy, Responsive
Aviation-grade carbon fibre and magnesium aluminium alloy ensure the lightweight and portability of foldable XMission. It can be deployed immediately with a flick to unfold.
A Reliable Partner to Work With
The intelligent SUPERX 3 PRO RTK flight control system is the 5th generation of XAG’s patented industrial application avionics system. Powerful computing capabilities and reliable safety configurations are combined to provide support for autonomous flight, with superior reliability and redundancy. Flight safety is further guaranteed with a terrain tracing radar effective within 100 metres, and a front obstacle avoidance system intended to scan terrain and detect obstacles.
Flexible Planning, Easy to Control
A variety of flight modes facilitate XMission to tackle challenging landscapes, including standard pattern, grid pattern and linear pattern, and to adjust itself to multiple mission scenarios. All operations can be completed by a smartphone and the add-on ACB1 CommBack. You can select target fields, adjust flight and imaging parameters directly within the App. Autonomous missions like surveying or inspection can be conducted with ease after a small amount of training.
*More flexible operation console plans: ACS1 ControlStick and ARC1 PRO Smart Remote Controller are available.
Standard Pattern:Polygon, Enclosed Area
Grid Pattern:High Definition 3D Modelling
Linear Pattern:Inspection of road, channel, etc.
Centimetre-level Positioning, Built for Precision Tasks
Dual RTK plus GNSS positioning system, and real-time centimetre-level flight positioning provides reliable data support in various air tasks. XMission carries a 4G communication module connected to the XAG Cloud RTK network to immediately start missions without setting up Portable RTK Base.
Allowing Third-party Payload for Multiple Needs
With 3 digital extension interfaces and an open SDK, the payload system can be customised or developed with freedom to meet the requirements of industrial users. XAG XCam Imaging Camera and XAG XCam MultiSpectrum Camera help with fast farm information collection and decision-making.
XAG® XCam® Imaging Camera
Reliable Solution to HD Imagery
With XAG XCam, centimetre-level accurate imaging and mapping can be accomplished with ease. Both cloud and local image stitching solutions are available to generate 1:500 HD-maps. Farmland boundaries can be mapped by XAI Agriculture Intelligence and then would be applied directly to the XAG P series UAS for autonomous plant protection operation.
The 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor produces high resolution images. With global shutter, sharp images can be captured without distortion or blurring even during high-speed flights. Meanwhile, the XCam can precisely coordinate and synchronise data in milliseconds, which ensures imaging is consistent with its time and geographical location, so as to meet the requirements of 1:500 HD mapping. High-definition imaging is further secured by optical autofocus and pre-setting distortion data of lens to facilitate post stitch processing. With the terrain tracing module of XMission, XCam can conduct 3D terrain modelling for complex environments and fly in grid patterns, tracking terrain fluctuations to ensure consistent resolution of overall model.
Cloud + Local Image Stitching Solutions to Meet Different Demands in Different Scenarios.
XCam + Encrypted Cloud Computing:
High-speed processing for large scale mapping data, 15 minutes for 200mu (13.3ha)
XCam + XStation:
Quick on-site processing without network, 15 minutes for 200mu (13.3ha)
XCam + mobile App:
Suitable for small land data processed directly by mobile phone, 3 minutes for 20mu (1.3ha)(5 photos)
*Note: Calculated on GSD of 5cm/Pixel, course overlap rate 70%, lateral overlap rate 70%.
Farmland boundaries and crop positions in 2D/3D HD maps can be mapped by the XAI Agriculture Intelligence and then would be applied directly to the XAG P series UAS for autonomous plant protection operation.
XAG® XCam® MultiSpectrum
Remote Sensing to Facilitate Precise Decision-making
With XCam MultiSpectrum camera, 4-spectrum HD crop images can be captured as well as HD RGB images. The NDVI map aligned in pixel level can facilitate on-site agriculture decision making. The farm prescription map generated by XAI can be applied directly to the XAG P series UAS for autonomous plant protection operation.
Equipped with an 1-inch 20-megapixel RGB camera + a four-spectral channel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, the system can capture 4-band HD multi-spectral images of crops and HD RGB (visible light) images. The global shutter can precisely coordinate with RTK navigation to synchronise images with the high-precision position data in milliseconds. The images from five different channels are aligned automatically, and the photosensitivity sensor is calibrated automatically. Accurate remote sensing image of farmland can be processed on-site, what you get is more than what you see.
If any abnormality is found on the farmland during shooting at high altitude, XMission will react as a “microscope” and perform a supplemental shooting for the abnormal area at lower altitude. Meanwhile, multi-spectral and RGB images of the area will be processed simultaneously to assist decision-making.
The AI digital farmland model generated by XAG Agriculture Intelligence will provide crop spraying prescriptions directly applied to the XAG P Series Plant Protection UAS, achieving the goal of “spray only where it needs” for farmers.
To cope with more challenges, XAG will allow third party payload and communication protocols on XMission. By doing so, developers can create more possibilities to meet the demands of various industries by utilising the open SDK and development documentation.
