Introduction
The AD-150 is American Dynamics Flight Systems’ next generation maritime capable high speed Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). The AD-150’s capabilities to perform vertical take-offs and landings, and cruise at high speeds make the platform a unique and ideal choice for both land and sea
based operations.

American Dynamics Flight Systems’ High Torque Aerial Lift (HTAL) implementation in the AD-150 maximizes the vehicle’s control authority during hover and transition to
forward flight. The AD-150 features a modular mission payload design, with internal bays and external stores located in the vehicle’s center of gravity. The AD-150’s versatile payload bay configuration allows the AD-150 to support the most demanding payload systems and missions.

AD-150 features:

  • Advanced tilt-duct propulsion system enables both vertical take-off and landing and efficient high speed cruise
  • Modern airframe design, fully validated through the use of reputable computational fluid dynamics (CFD) systems
  • Composite airframe constructed using carbon fiber and Kevlar materials
  • High performance turboshaft powerplant – Versatile payload configuration with internal and external payload stores
  • Interoperable data links and Ground Control Station (GCS) interfaces
  • Specs
    Powerplant : PW 200 or T700 gasoline-kerosene engine
