PD-1 Unmanmilitary grade UAS for salened Aerial System

 Victoria Air Photos and Survey is pleased to partner with UKRSPE–°SYSTEMS as an official representative of their new and advanced Unmanned Aircraft Sytem platform offered in Canada.

UKRSPE–°SYSTEMS was founded in 2014 by a group of enthusiasts to meet the growing demand for UAV solutions in the territory of Ukraine and other countries.

Together we seek to provide flexible UAV solutions for military and civil use. Solutions include UAV airframes, gyro-stabilized gimbals with EO and IR sensors, tactical multi-rotor drones, ground control stations and supportive equipment. Featuring latest technologies and progressive engineering, we offer high quality products at affordable prices.


PD-1 UAS is a complete solution that consists of a light-weight 3 m wing span UAV platform equipped with a fuel engine, gimbal and ground control station. Other payloads are also available upon request. PD-1 is suitable for surveillance, aero photo mapping and many other applications.

Since the PD-1 is powered with standard gasoline for fuel, it is capable of flying in cold weather extremes, and with much longer range and endurance. This gives the platform a clear advantage over those UAS powered with electric batteries especially given Canadian weather conditions.
