SPCS

SUSPENDED PAYLOAD CONTROL SYSTEM

Solution

MDV offers an advantageous solution for lifting and transporting suspended loads through the use of rotating wing aerial platforms, designed in order to be able to exploit the advantages in industrial processes, definitively solving the problem of load oscillations.

The solution involves the development of a control system for rotary wing aircraft that integrates functionalities oriented to the control of suspended loads, including the fundamental capacity of automatic load oscillation damping. The system will be called Suspended Payload Control System (SPCS) and is intended as a COTS product containing the necessary functionalities to make a rotary wing aircraft, with or without a pilot, suitable for aerial work with suspended load.

Functionality

Swing Damping

Automatic minimization of oscillations without the need for dedicated sensors

Auto-tuning

Automatic setting of parameters

Upwind Hovering

Self-orientation of the bow into the wind (for UASs with rudder tail)

Cargo releas

Load hooking / unhooking management

BVLOS oriented

Full compatibility with BVLOS operations in automatic flight modes

Features

OEM conception

Integration with autopilot firmware or on dedicated hardware

Multi-platform

Compatible with any configuration of rotary wing aircraft: manned, unmanned or OPV

Multi-scale

Compatible with platforms of various weights and sizes

Multi-application

Highly configurable to suit different missions

Multi-condition

Can also be used at night, with wind and low visibility
