What use have landing gears in flight? The answer to this question spawned the idea for our mobile runway system for UAV and light aircraft. In addition to the development of the mobile runway and complementary UAV applications, we offer consulting services in aircraft systems technology and automation technology.
What we do...
Benefits for your application
Mobile and infrastructure-independent runways, e.g. drone ports for cargo drones, non-permanent logistics for disaster relief and crisis operations as well as access to hard-to-reach locations (islands, plateaus, etc.). Little to no impact on natural habitats means more freedom in choosing deployment sites.
Full flight automation of highly efficient fixed-wing air vehicles. No need for staff at launch site means low cost as one operator or remote pilot is sufficient for several sites. Fast rensponse times lead to new market areas for fixed-wing aircraft.
Increased fixed-wing air vehicle performance. No need for landing gear directly reduces weight - even more when resizíng the air vehicle. Less weight is equivalent to more payload or longer endurance.
Low A/C requirements
Low operating requirements for the aircraft due to less mechanical stress on the airframe during take-off and high landing safety due to maintaining crab angle until touchdown. Assisted take-off and landing reduces power requirements for take-off and removes the demand for reversing thrust.
Perfect technology for persistent surveillance, linear long / area large tasks and fast response capability. Examples are automated detection and fighting of forest fires, operations of authorities and organizations with security tasks, monitoring of network infrastructures, solar-powered electric aircraft, HAPS, in general for large wingspan aircraft.
