Fixed-wing electric VTOL drone for weather measurement

The SkyEye Sierra VTOL drone is easy to modify to provide customized solutions for specific applications. It is an ideal solution to meet the needs of the weather Physics Group of the University of Tubingen led by Professor Jens Bange.

Professor Jens Bange and his team have been applying remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to atmospheric sciences for many years to study the processes of atmospheric flow and turbulence exchange and transport in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL). This includes monitoring momentum, heat, water vapor, carbon dioxide, and aerosol flux. In addition to basic research, the team has also used this expertise in various wind energy research projects on sea and complex terrain.

FD180P long endurance heavy VTOL fixed-wing drone for artificial rainfall

FD180P  long endurance heavy VTOL fixed-wing UAV  is a large-scale oil-powered long-haul composite wing vertical take-off and landing drone independently developed by our company, it paylaof 18 artificial rainfall bombs to fight against drought

The drone platform has the following features and advantages:

a) Practical and efficient: it has the characteristics of fixed-wing UAV's long flight time, fast speed, long distance and large load;

b) Vertical take-off and landing: with the take-off and landing mode of the rotorless drone, greatly reducing the requirements for landing and landing and airspace;

c) low cost of use: no complicated and bulky launching and recycling equipment, no additional recycling sensors required;

d) Simple operation: integrated special flight control and navigation system, full autonomous flight, operators only need to send flight plans, no professional training and operational experience;
