CP Technologies has now launched a new business division — CP Aeronautics. The latter will supply integrated turnkey unmanned aerial systems (UAS) platforms as well as designs to handle various payloads, data links, ground control stations, and communications for defense and civil applications.
CP Aeronautics’ broad product portfolio has demonstrated excellent performance and operability in very demanding environments. Backed by continuous research and development, these systems are built on three decades of technological and operational experience.
“Through the in-house capability as a UAS manufacturer and integrator with specialist subsidiaries and technology partners, we offer a complete range of subsystems including air vehicles, inertial navigation and avionics, electro-optical payloads (EO), communications, propulsion systems, launch and retrieval systems, command and control units,” says V.P. of CP Aeronautics business development Brad Pilsl.
“We also offer high-end training solutions for the partners and customers,” he adds.
CP Aeronautics will support government and commercial customers with the entire infrastructure necessary for development, production, integration, flight-testing, certification, and operational support of UAS throughout their service.
The combat-proven operational systems include the …
Orbiter 2 Small-UAS (SUAS)
Orbiter 3 Small Tactical UAS (STUAS)
Orbiter 4 Small Tactical UAS (STUAS)
Aerostar Tactical UAS (TUAS)
Dominator XP (MALE UAS)
Pegasus 120 High-performance Multi-Mission Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) UAS
Stay tuned in coming weeks when Design World sister site motioncontroltips.com will publish more details on the electric motors in these drones. In fact, the Orbiter 1, Orbiter 2, and Orbiter 3 come with brushless outrunner motors — 28 volts for Orbiter 1 and Orbiter 2 and 42 volts for Orbiter 3. The motors are direct drive with fixed-pitch propellers.
A folding propeller is also available to reduce drag during gliding and for minimal radar detection. The company also offers hybrid solutions with an internal combustion engine in parallel or series configuration. For more information, visit cp-aeronautics.com.
