Up And Coming: Terrafugia Shares News Of New Brand, Commaris

First Product Is An Electric, Fixed-Wing/VTOL Named The Seeker

Terrafugia reveals the launch of a new brand, Commaris. The brand’s first product, the Seeker, is an electric, fixed-wing/VTOL hybrid aircraft designed explicitly for autonomous commercial aerial applications.

Commaris revealed the Seeker at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas, which took place  from September 7 through September 9.

The Seeker can fly for more than three hours without changing the battery, with top speeds just over 60 mph. The capabilities for the payload are up to 10 lbs. Assembly or disassembly is possible in the field in under three minutes.

"We are very excited to launch our new brand, Commaris, and its first product, the Seeker. This UAV is designed to perform a wide variety of commercial inspection operations in applications such as power, gas, oil, mapping, agriculture, and security,” said Kevin Colburn, President of Terrafugia and Commaris. “Our team of experienced aviation professionals has created an extremely capable, commercial-grade UAV that, in many situations, will deliver results that typical rotary-wing UAVs or helicopters cannot come close to providing.”

The Seeker’s design includes quiet electric motors that helps to achieve a noise signature of only 40 decibels on the ground and near silence at 500 feet AGL. 

This feature makes the UAV perfect for aircraft for security, powerline patrols, and missions operating in noise-sensitive environments, ensuring operations will be completed quickly and quietly.

The Seeker’s large payload-carrying capability will come with plenty of opportunities to customize. Examples include  a 30x optical zoom EO/IR camera for inspection, a 120-megapixel high-resolution camera for terrain mapping and 3D modeling, a six-band multispectral camera designed for precision agriculture analysis, a LiDAR system, a laser methane sensor, or a corona discharge sensor, most of which will feature the ability to stream data to the operator in near-real time, according to the company.
