Ascent Spirit - The Ideal Platform for Mission Critical Operations

Meet the new face of mission critical operations from Ascent AeroSystems, the Ascent Spirit.

Spirit is a dependable, all-weather, high-performance, coaxial UAV designed and built in the USA. Unlike conventional drones, Spirit is designed to operate reliably in the harshest environments, and offers unparalleled performance and flexibility with a minimal airframe design.

Compact & Modular

Enterprise level operations require solutions that are practical in the field. Spirit’s compact airframe easily fits within a standard backpack and its fully modular airframe allows for field-swappable payloads so it’s easy to bring what’s needed, where it’s needed, when it’s needed. Setup is quick and easy, allowing for takeoff from any type of terrain.

Rugged & All Weather

Spirit is protected against contamination and can reliably operate in adverse weather conditions, including heavy rain, sleet, sand and snow, and can operate in winds that would ground other UAVs.

Efficient & High-Performance

Spirit sets the new standard for performance in its weight class with nearly 10 lbs. available for batteries and payloads. The highly streamlined airframe has a top speed of over 60mph to go farther, faster, longer, and carry more.

Versatile & Adaptable

Spirit’s adaptable design avails entirely new deployment methods and allows operators to easily incorporate a growing ecosystem of swappable payloads and software.
