Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for civil aviation

The UAV market has significantly developed for the last 5 years and will keep growing in the next decades. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are used in military and commercial applications and can fulfil requirements that today cannot be managed by human beings.

Innovations

  • Optimized structure for vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL)

  • Hybrid Engines solution

  • Fully automated remote piloted aircraft system

  • Max. takeoff weight of more than 150 kg with a 25 kg payload

  • Long operating range (approximately 500 km)

  • Virtual aircraft simulation: from architecture trade-off to real equipment simulation

OMEGA aims at answering to three operational objectives:

  • Contribute to the definition, development and certification basis of new functional breakthrough which could be applied in various industries, thus identifying the upcoming challenges of the associated disruptive technologies that could be implemented in real operations in the next decades.

  • Promote AKKA Technologies know-how and skills showing the concrete ability to develop a whole product from A to Z, with innovative concepts, methods and tools as well as manufacturing processes (incl. 3D print).

  • Address the needs of every client for whom the use of UAV platforms may have practical commercial applications (search and rescue, relief and agricultural cartography, surveillance, scientific research): from needs analysis to services deployment through platform solution specifications, identification and in-service support.
