We are very happy that we can expand our staff to include: a programmer, a production engineer, and a web manager. Little Smart Things is growing and we have some great products coming out this spring, and we might need your help.
We are looking forward to welcome three new colleagues, and if you think you could be one of them, then stop by our jobs section and read the full descriptions.
We look forward to hearing from you! Spread the word.
Today was a very good day at Little Smart Things. In the past year we have gone from 1 to 11 employees, we moved to new spaces and got into the hurricane of UAV development. Today our first full UAV system is done, and we tested the full system for the first time.
The plane is aimed at geo-mapping, environmental studies, agricultural surveys and other sensor applications. It flies well – very well, and everybody here is very proud. It’s aimed at 1.5 kg weight, but can easily manage 2.3 kg., and will fly at a leisurely pace at 50 km/h. We are especially happy with the flight time of over two hours!
We engineered this from the ground up for sensors. Everything from aerodynamics, fiber-work and electronics has been developed, tested, adjusted, remade and finally approved. The result is stunning!
This fantastic little bird can take the new Sony A7R into the air and do very detailed 3d mapping of an area of up to two square kilometer in one go. Another thing that make this a killer product is it’s landing! Check it out in the video. Enough of the talking, see it in action here:
We will do extensive testing in the weeks to come, and slowly ramp up production. We are eager to see this fly in as many places as possible, and we will publish pricing and pre-order options soon.
Feel free to ask us anything at email@example.com, we’ll happily answer. As with our previous products we are very open-source and eager to have people join in on our development. Stay tuned for more soon!
We have confirmed that the LANC interface with Black Magic cameras does indeed work with the StratoSnapper2. We have had a lot of questions about this option, and we now have several positive responses. You just need to pick the right jack plug to go with your cam.
On a different note: We have been working very hard at Little Smart Things! We are now eight persons on board and in a few weeks we’ll be able to show you what we have been working on. Stay tuned for some serious flying experience
