Congratulations to team Ocuair on their incredible achievement having successfully made the first English Channel crossing by a multi rotor drone. The flight distance was 35 Kms and was completed in 72 mins. Amazingly the drone still had nearly 30 mins flight time left after the crossing!
The aircraft itself was a large custom quad designed specially for the task by Vulcan UAV, and we are very proud to have been part of this milestone in the history of drone flight. Well done Ocuair!!

Vulcan UAV are very pleased to announce our participation in the new European project DigiArt due to run for the next three years! DigiArt is an EU funded project that seeks to provide a new, cost efficient  solution to the capture, processing and display of cultural artefacts. It offers innovative 3D capture systems and methodologies, including aerial capture using drones, automatic registration and modelling techniques to speed up post-capture processing, semantic image analysis to extract features from digital 3D representations, a “story telling engine” offering a pathway to a deeper understanding of art, and also augmented / virtual reality technologies offering advanced abilities for viewing, or interacting with the 3D models.
