A Federally-compliant heavy-lift UAV platform made in the USA. Supporting 8 kg payloads and flight times up to 40 minutes, the IF1200 will soon be the new workhorse in your fleet. An open-system architecture gives users complete control over their aircraft, creating a complete solution for applications including: utility inspection, aerial surveying, public safety, and defense.
The IF1200’s universal payload interface integrates with any auxiliary system meeting size and weight requirements. Identical payload spacings to the M600 allows for existing integrations to transfer to the IF1200 with minimal downtime. The ability to swap between sensors presents a key advantage of the IF1200’s airframe. Even switching between a complete LiDAR surveying payload to a gimbaled inspection setup is possible. A cross-functional platform that serves your organization day in and day is what you can count on the IF1200 to do for you.
OPTICAL: The IF1200 supports a range of optical cameras leveraging complete camera control and the ability to write GNSS data directly on the image for photogrammetry and inspection applications.
LIDAR: Capable of supporting any LiDAR system under 8 kgs. RTF Configurations are available through a strategic partnership with LIDAR USA. The IF1200 supports their Snoopy line of systems which include LiDAR sensors from Riegl, Optech, and Quanergy.
EO/IR: Commercial and Mil-spec EO/IR cameras integrate into the IF1200’s ecosystem for applications in: Defense, Law Enforcement, wildlife surveying, pipeline inspection, and more.
Inspired Flight has developed a proprietary Universal Payload Interface that allows for the integration of nearly any third-party tech stack. This along with an open-system architecture provides an incredibly flexible platform for OEM or experimental UAV applications. Inspired Flight specializes in building custom configurations for enterprises looking for a tailored solution to their application. Combining a team of world-class system integrators with a flexible UAV platform allows custom UAV solutions to come to life on-time and below budget.
Made in the USA
All development, production, and testing takes place at our California HQ and leverages domestically-sourced electronics. Since its inception, Inspired Flight has been committed to producing US-made technology.
About Inspired Flight
With a keen understanding of the unique challenges facing commercial operators, Inspired Flight vehicles are built for the pilot in the field, enabling the safe completion of objectives while vastly improving the enterprise’s operational efficiency and bottom line. A principle mission to drive growth in the domestic UAV industry through innovative and ultra-reliable hardware solutions has led to Inspired Flight’s flagship vehicle, the IF1200.
Representing the culmination of Inspired Flight’s product strategy, the IF1200 is poised to become a dominant force in the larger 20-55lb UAV market. Designed primarily for Defense and GIS applications, the IF1200 brings a level of ruggedness and reliability not yet realized in the commercial drone space. Meant to be a workhorse for operators, the IF1200 was designed from the ground up to deliver on the performance and safety absolutely essential to operators.
Originally designed as part of Inspired Flight’s work with the DoD, the IF1200 has been in stealth production since Q2 2020. Having just been launched commercially, the Inspired Flight team is eager to continue proving just how much its American-made heavy-lift UAV can do to transform business practices worldwide.
