CARVEC is an electronic helicopter autopilot system designed to provide a stable aerial platform with minimum workload and training of the operator. It utilises the latest technology to enable small-size UAV aircraft to be used in applications where it was previously impossible.
CARVEC now has an official partner in Thailand operating full-spec 'Merlin' UAV systems. See their work here.
