Platform for landing/takeoff multipurpose drones, with predisposition to fit on different vessel types. Made with low specific weight and high corrosion resistance material. Studied and tested in different configurations: fixed, equipped with self-leveling system, with patented protective barrier folding automatically.
When the platform is completely open it is possible to raise a protective railing, available as an optional, along the entire surface of the landing platform. The operation is made easier thanks to radial gas pistons which facilitate the rise of the handrails.
The platform can be folded on itself via either a hydraulic system or a manual one, allowing a considerably reduction of the overall space in the boat in case of long period of inactivity. The platform is provided with safety systems: 1) two independent hydraulic circuits, one with back-up function to the other; 2) a system of accumulators able to take back the platform to initial position in case of failure of hydraulic pumps. Other advantage is the easy drones lock to the platform by quick fasteners and security belts arranged on the deck without use of expensive anchoring grids. Furthermore, with a simple positioning of the lateral wings, it can get a shelter from wind and rain.
