MIR has invented a new uav design “The Vectorotor” to create new use cases for drones. Their patent pending design has the maneuverability necessary to perform high rise window washing, oil/tower contact inspection, and high reach painting. MIR is focusing on building drone hardware and is looking to partner with companies to create these applications.

In recent years, the multirotor has become the staple of drone design. With minimal moving parts it makes for a simple way to get cameras and other payloads into the air. However, this simplicity is what also makes the craft unstable while flying causing drawbacks. Having to tilt the airframe limits the amount of precision an aircraft can achieve and the type of maneuvers it can perform.

That’s why MIR created The Vectorotor, to address the stability issues with drones and open up new use cases. Instead of tilting the frame like traditional multirotors, The Vectorotor moves by tilting the rotors. This method of movement allows MIR’s drones to perform complex and precise maneuvers. There are many applications for The Vectorotor and MIR’s first objective is to automate rope access work. Using The Vectorotor, jobs like high rise window washing, oil/tower contact inspection, and high reach painting can be performed cheaper and safer.

MIR is a company that builds drone hardware and is looking to partner with companies to develop applications.
