UAVOS To Conduct Search And Rescue Martime UAV Demonstrations At UMEX 2020

UAVOS, a developer of professional unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), has announced that it has completed its tests of the new version of the main rotor blades for installation on helicopters with a take-off mass of 50 kg and a rotor diameter of 2600 mm. Composite blades are improved by gluing into the leading edge an all-metal edging. As a result of the modification, the aerodynamic stability of the blade has been improved, and wear resistance has been increased during flights in severe weather conditions: rain, snow, dust, sand, etc., thereby the product’s operating life has doubled.

“Rotor blade tips spin at near sound speeds. And any object, whether it be dust, sand, grass, snow, ice chips, insects, etc. at such speeds, destroys the leading edge,” comments UAVOS CEO Aliaksei Stratsilatau. “The new design features upgrades resulting in improved performance envelope and reliability. This approach allows customers to run very lean maintenance programs that require only basic facilities,” says Aliaksei Stratsilatau.

UAVOS’s Solar-Powered SAT-i Aircraft Completed Ten Hour Continuous Aerial Surveying

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.
