UAV DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Aeronautical Engineering is at the core of our skills and capabilities, with a particular focus on advanced concept design and development. We have an extensive background in the design-on-requirements of unconventional UAVs configurations (fixed or rotary wings, hybrid fixed-wing VTOLs, tailsitters, racing multicopters). Here you can find a list of the main services we offer in this disciplinary segment.

AIRCRAFT CONFIGURATION DESIGN

– Mission requirements analysis

– Mission-specific design concepts

– Preliminary design validations

– Material selection

– Detailed BOM analysis

– Detailed design

– Mass breakdown

AIRCRAFT AERODYNAMIC DESIGN AND ANALYSIS

– Airfoils selection

– Lifting surfaces sizing and design, control surface sizing

– Drag Breakdown

– Performance, Range and Endurance computation

– Aerodynamic derivatives calculation (CFD, VOrtex Lattice, Datcom, Hoerner)

– Off-design aerodynamic handling analysis

PROPELLER ANALYSIS AND DESIGN

– Design strategies based upon different theories (Actuator Disk,   Blade Element Momentum Theory etc.)

– Design of fixed/variable pitch propellers

– Airfoils selection

– Chord and Twist distribution

– Rotor Parameter optimization

PROPULSIVE SYSTEM SELECTION

– Propeller selection

– Motor selection

– Power distribution and ESC selection

– Numerical-based Battery selection

PAYLOAD INTEGRATION

– Advanced sensors integration (Lidar, Cinema Camera, Ground Penetrating Radars etc.)

– Control of payloads

– Communication systems

AUTOPILOT TUNING

– PX4 autopilot stack

– Ardupilot stack

– Openpilot

– Betapilot

– Paparazzi

– Piccolo

– Custom Algorithm development (EKF type)

– Safety features and procedures development

ASSEMBLY AND FLIGHT TESTS

– System and subsystem general assembly

– Flight tests (manual mode)

– Flight tests (auto mode)

– Performance measurement

– Safety features testing (manual/auto mode)

Mechanical Engineering

All the Drones/UAVs/Robots we provide have been mechanically engineered from beginning to end, moving through processes of conceptual design, 3D solid modelling, strength analysis, machining, 3D printing or carbon composite cutting and fabrication support. The same people that design our Unmanned Systems actually make them.

3D DESIGN

– 3D Modeling

– Rendering/Animation

– Complex surface modeling

– Design for manufacturability and assembly

RAPID PROTOTYPING

– High resolution 3D printing

– CNC cutting (Wood, carbon fiber, aluminum and plastic)

– Laser cutting (plexiglas, wood)

MANUFACTURING

– CNC Carbon Fiber cutting

– CNC Carbon Glass cutting

– CNC G10 cutting

– CNC Aluminum cutting

– Custom made small parts (Nylon, Aluminum) like screws, standoffs, dampers, nuts, washers

FIRMWARE & SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

All the Drones/UAVs/Robots we provide have been assembled, programmed, and tested entirely in-house.
whatever the project you are facing, be it an FPV racing drone, or an autonomous tail sitter for aerial photogrammetry, we are able to develop and integrate all the necessary software stack, up to the completion of the tests.
