Unmanned Aerial System V-3M

V-3M is an innovative new Unmanned Aerial System from Alpha Sagittarius Ltd. The main part of the system is the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with maximum take-off mass of 5,5 kg or 7 kg depending on the configuration, capable of autonomous and manual flight mission execution. Due to its advanced aerodynamic features and the use of very light, but strong composite materials (carbon, aramid), VECTOR V-3M is superior to its competitors in its category.

The key feature of the V-3M UAS is the modular design of the UAV. The configuration of the aircraft differs due to the innovative modular solution in which the aircraft can change its characteristics as needed by enabling the customer to modify the UAV depending on the type of mission that needs to be executed. There are three basic types of configuration of the UAV that can be easily modified within minutes.

Unmanned Aerial System V 3M

V-3M-C is standard conventional take-off and landing (CTOL)

V-3M-V is standard configuration with plugged VTOL modules between wings and the fuselage

V-3M-X8 is a multirotor VTOL with 8 rotors in double X configuration that totally replace the wings with two modules with rotors plugged (one on each side of the fuselage.

By changing the configuration of the modular aircraft by replacing the wings with the rotor modules on the same hull a true multi-functionality can be achieved. In this way a potential buyer or user with a simple replacement/addition of the wings for rotors can completely change the function and features of the system by transforming the current paradigm of use of the unmanned aerial vehicles “one UAV – one purpose” into a new paradigm ” one modular UAV – more purposes”. This makes this system a unique product on the market today.

Another key feature of the V-3M Unmanned Aerial System is the in house developed Image Recognition Software with Machine Learning functions and elements of Artificial Intelligence combined with a capable GPU carried on board, enable the UAV to truly perform the missions autonomously.

The possible application of VECTOR V-3M UAS are many: Precision agriculture: crop monitoring, yield estimation, fertilization dosage, lost cattle searching; Search and rescue: automatic search and rescue missions on land, (even on inaccessible terrain due to modular design) and at sea; Surveillance: searching for possible intrusion, border control, convoy and area protection; Fire control and search for start of fire on inaccessible terrains; Terrain mapping; Delivering medicines, vaccines and blood plasma to the remote locations; Cargo deliveries to remote locations; Autonomous surveillance of: pipelines, gas lines, energy lines and buildings, bridges, production facilities,  construction sites and many more.


The V-3M-C is standard conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) configuration of the UAV in the form of a flying wing, 2.2 m wing span and maximum take-off mass of (MTOW) 5.5 kg of which 1.5 kg is the maximum payload. The battery system is designed to give the aircraft the autonomy of 3 hours at 60 km / h cruising speed, with a top speed of 140 km / h and 100 km range, or 200 km without return to launch point. It is suitable for long range missions (Type A). The take-off of the aircraft itself can be manual with a bungy cord or autonomous with a catapult with predefined instructions in the system. The advantage of autonomous take-offs is that the pilot or person in charge of operating the aircraft and catapult may not be in close proximity to the system. Even with bungy cord launch the aircraft will start the motor and take off automatically once it has been pulled by a cord. The landing can be done automatically by parachute system or landing in the net.

The V-3M-V is the configuration of the flying with two additional modules with two rotors each to be plugged in between the hull and the wings which enable the aircraft to have vertical takeoff and landing. Once the aircraft is in the air safely above ground the rear propeller will start and the aircraft will transition to regular straight flight with lift and the vertical rotors will stop and they will be positioned in an direction of the flight so that they do not cause more drag. The wing span is 2.45 m, maximum take-off mass is 6.5 kg of which 1 kg is payload. The battery system is designed to have maximum flight duration of 1.5 h. The cruise speed is 70 km/h and maximum flight speed of the V-3M-V is 90 km / h. It is suitable for taking off and landing in inaccessible terrains, delivering packages to the point delivery and for other medium-range missions 20-30 km (mission type B). Due to the modularity of the complete system, payload itself is variable depending on the need.

The V-3M-X8 is the configuration of the aircraft with two additional modules plugged in instead of wings with four rotors on each side in coaxial configuration of double X. This in fact turns the aircraft into a multirotor drone capable of heavy maneuvering and steady vertical flights. V-3M-X8 is a fully autonomous drone with 2m diameter and with a MTOW take-off mass of 6kg, of which 1,5 kg is a useful payload. The battery system gives the aircraft the autonomy of 30 min in flight but with greater maneuverability than VTOL version. This configuration is suitable for short-range missions up to 5 km and the application of inspection of a high-rise building, bridge or a slow moving or stationary object (mission type C).

Our Solution


STANDARD FIXED WING (long range mission)

VTOL MODULES added to standard fixed wing (for vertical take off and landing and medium range)

MULTIROTOR MODULES (for short, but mostly vertical flights and hovering)

Traditional Solution

Three different types of missions would require three different types of UAS. One long range, one medium range with VTOL and multi-copter type drone. Instead one drone with  exchangeable modular parts can be used, with no loss of capabilities.
