Ft. Benning, GA- Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE)
Spcs. Jon Walden and Colin Eikenhorst operate a Phoenix 50H - Sense Through the Roof Unmanned Aerial System via a remote control from a rooftop at McKenna MOUT Site Sept. 22 at Fort Benning, Ga. The miniature helicopter contains multiple sensors to detect occupants within a compound. The Soldiers from A Company, 1st Battalion, 29th Infantry Regiment will conduct experiments using this technology, developed by Tialinx, during the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment at Fort Benning from Oct. 17 through Nov. 4.

Phoenix50-A: A VTOL sUAS with Software-Defined Multi-Function Radar
Phoenix50 Landing on a Roof
Phoenix50-A is a remotely controlled small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) integrated with mm-wave miniaturized radars. It has a software-defined multi-function radar sensor implemented with its vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) platform. The Phoenix50-A VTOL sUAS system is capable of performing various functions such as motion detection within a compound, scanning the ground for unexploded ordnance (UXO), and non-line of site (NLOS) landing using fine beam ultra-wideband (UWB), multi-Gigahertz radio frequency (RF) sensor array. The sUAS can be remotely controlled at long standoff distances from the ground or an airborne asset.
Phoenix50-H1: Special Antenna and Electronics Design with Software-Defined UXO Detection
Detection of Displacement
Phoenix50-H1 is a VTOL sUAS and its special antenna design for detection of objects underground. Through multiple scans, the target's 3-D image is constructed and presented in a remote monitor. This clip demonstrates raw data collection.
Two Mini-UAV Operation to Detect Compound Occupancy in Motion or Breathing Modes
Combination of two mini-UAVs dubbed as Phoenix50-HTM with integrated RF sensor to detect compound occupancy in motion or breathing modes, and Eye-In-The-SkyTM a remote site surveillance guide to the operator enables landing of the sensor at a suitable place. This clip demonstrates the operation of both mini-UAVs in Unisom to investigate occupancy of a premise.
A Multi-Sensor Mini-Copter with an Extended Remote Landing Range and Reporting Capability
Phoenix50-H Landed on a Cart
Phoenix50-HTM is a quad coaxial mini-copter system is capable of performing multiple functions such as detecting movement or breathing of a hiding person in a compound from a sloped roof. The mini-copter can be remotely controlled at extended standoff distances of more than multiples of 100 feet from ground or an airborne asset to keep the operators out of harm’s way.
A Mini-UAV with a Long Standoff Capability to Detect Motion and Breathing Inside a Compound
Phoenix40-ATM is a lightweight and agile mini-UAV with programmability to fly to or land at multiple waypoints has been integrated with TiaLinx’s fine beam ultra-wideband (UWB), multi-Gigahertz radio frequency (RF) sensor array. The system provides long standoff surveillance of a premise to track movement as well as to detect motionless live objects.
