DH-HM is a next-generation UAV which can fly up to 4hours and lift payloads up to 4Kg. The secret behind this DH-HM long flight duration is a mixture of Li-Po batteries and an in-built 2000w generator which sustains the UAV. This is called a hybrid drone because the generator is fueled by gasoline.
Tethered Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are ideally suited for applications that require more endurance built to withstand harsh environments. Also, high band width communication is possible because of optical fiber tether.
Our autonomous DH-MAPPER can efficiently replace Gasoline aircraft that tend to be noisy and polluting. Not only are they zero-emission vehicles, but they weigh so less that they represent a far lower risk to the population in case of failure. In fact, we wanted them to be so lightweight that we had to take inspiration from biological systems to discover efficient ways of designing and controlling them. On top of that, our R&D team is according a large part of their effort to implement fail-safe behaviors in order to cope with in-flight failing components.
