We gained 100000GEL from GITA‘s Matching Grants Program and it is start for our ambitious project, to make hybrid VTOL unmanned aerial vehicle, to answer modern world’s problems in aerial monitoring, crisis management and emergency response.
Using funding we are going to finalize our VTOL Hybrid unmanned aerial vehicle project, build two units and start test services for crisis management and environment protection activities.
It is picture of our 1:3 scale VTOL Hybrid UAV without V-Tail and aileron installation, during test flight. We tested autonomous vertical take-off and landing, hover regime and fail safe actions. During the following weeks, we will test transition and fixed wing flight.
We want to mention progress of our RDTE(Research Development Test and Evaluation), more precisely manufacturing our prototype scale 1:3. Fuselage completed(please see picture below).
We are waiting propulsion and avionic systems to complete prototype assembly for test flight.
Test flight was scheduled June 21, but it will be delayed about a month.
In 2018 we started work on Vertical Take-off and Landing(VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) design which will be powered using hybrid system. The main goal is to achieve fully autonomous operation of the drone with increased flight endurance up to 24 hours. This is 2 meters long drone with 4 meters wing span, four electric motors are aligned around center of gravity and providing VTOL operation.

Vankel engine provides main power during conventional flight and same time is a driver for power generation unit which maintains LiPo battery charged for electric motors system. Using hybrid system we have powerful drone with minimum CO2 emission,high mobility and increased safety factor.

It can be used in any industry starting from emergency response operations to monitoring of protected areas. Thermal camera mounted on the fuselage gives possibility to fly night or any weather condition.
We are making 1:3 scale prototype for the project. Full drone is built with advanced composite materials.

Fuselage is assembled, wing assembly is in progress. We are searching investment possibilities to develop 1:1 scale project with its full power and limitless operations.
We are working to change the future of flight!
MAY-21 series poster was shown at Drone Berlin 2016 Design Show 14-15 October. This is the first steps for UnmannedAirTechnologies in the world of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles design. There are more interesting designs in progress and will be demonstrated in near future.
