Novadem continues to develop its range of drones for defense and security professionals, with the arrival of the NX160. This drone has extended capacities for a greater diversity of missions thanks in particular to its “mission pods” and its payload of 2kg.
After several years of success thanks to its NX70 drone, which equips, in particular, the French armed forces and the Marseille firefighters, Novadem is completing its range with the NX160. Thanks to its carrying capacity increased by its payload of 2kg, the NX160 broadens the scope of Novadem drones missions and paves the way for the integration of specialized sensors. This is already materializing through the partnership between Novadem and Proengin offering a unique airborne chemical threat detection solution (AP4C+ and NX160 drone).
The origins of the project
“We were requested by users and some of our industrial partners for specific missions that the NX70 could not meet due to its carrying capacity. A solution had to be found to complete the scope of use of our solutions. We heard the needs and developed in record time a new carrier that takes over 80% of the NX70 solution. It shares the same ground station, the same data links, the same on-board avionics, which has enabled us to considerably reduce the development cycle.”
