UAVOS INC. AND STRATODYNAMICS AVIATION INC. PIONEER A HIGH-ALTITUDE ATMOSPHERIC MONITORING PROJECT

UAVOS Inc. has successfully completed the first stage of the flight tests of the 10-meter prototype of the High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) ApusDuo, which was manufactured as part of the development program of ApusDuo solar aircraft with a wing span of 28m. That prototype was made for testing control algorithms, including take-off and landing, full-scale verification of HAPS aerodynamics. Test flights fully confirmed the flight characteristics of the UAV.

The HiDRON fills a gap in current balloon-based lift and drift observation methods.

The HiDRON is launched to the stratosphere via a helium-filled balloon. Once launched the autopilot and integrated atmospheric measurement system transmit data in real-time to a ground station. After reaching the desired altitude (or as directed by an operator on the ground) the HiDRON is released from the balloon and glides back to a pre-specified landing site. Unique autopilot flight algorithms can process in-situ data such as thermal or wave conditions, to increase flight duration or direct the flight path to specific areas.

UAVOS FIXED-WING UAV SITARIA COMPLETED FLIGHT TESTS

UAVOS Inc. has completed a series of test flights of a new unmanned Sitaria fixed - wing UAV. The new UAV is designed for patrol and observation missions, for aerial photography of terrain area with a radius of up to 120 km. Among other tasks, the unmanned aircraft is purposely designed to work with the LIDAR airborne laser scanning equipment as payload.

UAV Sitaria has a wide range of speeds (stall speed 65 km/h, maximum speed 150 km/h), which allows the aircraft to carry out missions at minimum flight speeds close to 70 km/h. For example, taking into account a tailwind of 6 m/s, the minimum operational speed of the aircraft will be about 90 km/h. To fulfill a mission using LIDAR it is important to maintain a certain speed of the aircraft relative to the ground. When the UAV performs monitoring while moving against the wind, it shall keep high air speed, and moving upwind – lower speed.

UAVOS HELICOPTER DRONES TO GET BRAND NEW ROTOR BLADES

UAVOS Inc., a Mountain View-based company specialized in unmanned solutions, has created a qualitatively new main rotor blade to be installed on helicopters with 77 lbs (35 kg) take-off mass and rotor diameter of 102,36" (2600 mm). New product development and production were carried out by UAVOS rotor blade specialists in its production facilities. The one-step blade molding technology using polymer composite materials and an improved aerodynamic shape affected dramatically the entire flight performance of the machine.

Usually, when mass produced, the main rotor blade is made by gluing together the lower and upper surfaces. UAVOS’ innovative solution uses a technology consisting of hot forming a composite ‘prepreg’ material, which involves the manufacture of a blade airfoil in a single step molding. This method eliminates the delamination of the lower and upper planes, since there is no glue seam. In addition, the design allows for the warping and narrowing of the blade, thus by increasing strength and rigidity while offering high aerodynamic characteristics, . increasing lifespan, reducing production costs, improving the performance, and making flights more reliable in warm climates.

UAVOS OFFERS NEW PRINCIPLES OF OPERATING SOLAR AIRCRAFT

UAVOS Inc, a Mountain View-based company specialized in unmanned solutions, is introducing a new solution – a control system for aircraft with a flexible wing for high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles HAPS (High Altitude Pseudo Satellite). New flight control principles will allow to shift the geographic area of "solar" aircraft flights to more northern latitudes.

HAPS will provide unique opportunities for using this solution in both civilian and defense areas, and for security tasks. UAVs powered by solar energy can serve for long continuous monitoring of the area of interest on the Earth's surface to get real-time information. To meet the demands of telecommunication companies, HAPS can create a network of autonomous repeaters of radio and high speed data signals over practically any territory, including the Northern regions during the summer, where the use of regular aircraft is highly problematic due to economic reasons, and weather conditions.
