Valmie (VMRI) Plans Aircraft Roll-Out At XPONENTIAL

Company Initiating Commercial Operations

Valmie Resources plans to unveil the newest in its line of aircraft at AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2017, the largest trade show for the growing unmanned systems and robotics sector.

Valmie will be incorporating five of the featured aircraft as it initiates commercial operations, offering a combination of unmanned vehicles, components, and services. Valmie acquired the base units from ALTI UAS.

ALTI’s next generation Transition unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will be on display at XPONENTIAL to demonstrate the aircraft’s advanced and efficient fixed wing system with vertical take off and land (VTOL) capability.

ALTI officially launched the Transition system across the world last year in conjunction with AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems Technology Magazine, which featured the ALTI Transition as their June/July cover story. Since then the Transition has been well proven with confirmed flight performance and endurance of up to seven hours and 500km (approx. 310 miles) range per flight. The Transition is made from the highest-grade materials, using unique proprietary techniques to ensure quality and reliability. A highly advanced aerodynamic design allows for low stall speeds, efficient cruise with very low drag, excellent stability, and extremely low weight. The airframe is completely modular and can be rapidly deployed from case to air in under 10 minutes with only two operators required.

As demonstrated by encouraging statistics, the outlook for the UAV sector is strong. Consulting group PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP predicts the global market for commercial applications of drone technology will explode to as much as $127 billion by 2020. According to Bloomberg Technology, the UAV industry is due to boom by more than 6,000 percent by the end of this decade, as drones enhance crop yields, validate insurance claims, and assist in filming movies.

"The favorable outlook in the UAV sector is reassuring. Offering leading edge UAVs such as ALTI’s latest model, along with Valmie’s 333 exemption status and the industry expertise we have at our disposal, puts our company in a prime position for growth,” said Valmie President and CEO Gerald B. Hammack.

In addition to ALTI UAS, Valmie says it has brought together top resources to offer customers many options in aircraft, components, and services. Vertitek, Valmie’s wholly owned subsidiary, delivers design and customization of prototypes for commercial UAVs in a wide range of sizes and categories.

Another resource available to Valmie is Praxis Aerospace Concepts (PACI), a well-respected U.S. consultancy offering a unique mix of proprietary technology and domain expertise. The firm specializes in white label services and provides unmanned systems and autonomous technology testing for various universities and corporations.
