CyPhy Works and Ascent Vision Announce Collaboration to Deliver Persistent Flight with Precision-Imaging

Partnership pairs leading imaging systems with tethered PARC drone to meet growing customer demand 

April 25, 2017, Danvers, MA. — CyPhy Works, the drone leader in long-duration flight, and Ascent Vision, specialists in Precision Gimbal Sensor Technology, announced today a new partnership to meet the growing customer demand for business-critical UAV solutions that demands precision imaging and persistent flight.

“We’re very excited about the potential of this partnership,” said Lance Vanden Brook, CyPhy Works CEO. “PARC’s long-term flight capabilities coupled with Ascent Vision’s deep experience in the design and manufacturing of quality Gimbaled technologies allows us to offer customers a truly differentiated solution.”

CyPhy Works’ PARCTM (Persistent Aerial Reconnaissance & Communications) is a portable, tethered drone that has been designed for long-endurance flights, potentially lasting hundreds of hours. The tether serves as PARC’s power conduit, and communications and video also flow over its patented Kevlar-reinforced microfilament tether.

Ascent Vision’s CM100 imaging system is a Dual-Sensor Gyro-Stabilized Gimbal which has been specifically designed for use on unmanned aircraft. With its light weight and size, the CM100 is easily integrated and mounted on almost any platform with ease. The innovative CM100 provides superior performance and cost-effective value with reliable results.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with CyPhy Works,” said Tim Sheehy, Ascent Vision Founder, and CEO. “Having our imaging systems selected as the preferred payload on such a well-regarded unmanned aerial platform is a significant milestone for Ascent Vision. The integration of our CM100 gimbal with the PARC provides operators with an innovative, reliable system for a variety of missions.”

Both companies are exhibiting at the upcoming AUVSI Xponential in Dallas, Texas, May 8-11, 2017.  Both companies will be displaying a PARC with a CM100 in their booths. More details on the partnership will also be disclosed at the show.
