Fight wildfires more EFFECTIVELY.
Supply remote towns more RELIABLY.
Reach survivors more QUICKLY.
The solution is here:
(Quad Multi-mission Aerial Platform).
Airports are optional.
Autonomous Flight System Inc. is a Canadian research and development company active in the autonomous and semi-autonomous aircraft development industry. Our primary focus is the development of large-size, unmanned, vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, with transitions to and from horizontal flight.
We designed and flight-tested an aircraft that takes off vertically, effortlessly transitions between hover and horizontal winged flight, and lands vertically.
Our Quad Multi-mission Aerial Platform combines the best of both helicopters and airplanes. It is ready to revolutionize air support sectors as diverse as airfreight, search and rescue, infrastructure surveillance, fire suppression, and many more point-to-point air support tasks.
QMAP: The gold standard for smooth VTOL transitions, minus the expensive tech.
Scalable and aerodynamically stable by design.
QMAP aircraft employ our proprietary Airflow Optimized Shared Lift technology perfected over several years of R&D, and flight testing.
We envisioned an advanced, versatile, multipurpose, vertical takeoff and landing aircraft that flies on its wings when in horizontal flight.
We wanted an aircraft with the VTOL utility of a helicopter combined with a fixed-wing aircraft’s range and payload advantages.
We wanted to create a flying platform capable of quick adaptation to carry varying payloads, and our technology delivers on that vision. We expect the uses to include: forest fire fighting, humanitarian missions, search and rescue, cargo delivery, reconnaissance missions, and many other applications that would benefit from point-to-point dispatch.
We wanted clean electric propulsion.
Battery propulsion is not yet practical for aircraft applications; therefore, hybrid propulsion is an excellent option. Our hybrid-electric aircraft require lower power for a horizontal flight resulting in lower fuel consumption and dramatic reductions of harmful emissions.
