About - UAV Navigation
UAV Navigation is a privately-owned company that has specialized in the design of autopilots, flight control systems and motion processing modules since 2004.
UAV Navigation’s flight control solutions are used by a variety of Tier 1 aerospace manufacturers in a wide range of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) - also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or 'drones'. These include high-performance tactical unmanned planes, aerial targets, mini-UAVs and helicopters.
The Company's autopilots carry out advanced functions, such as controlling multiple target drones at 700 km/h, a fully automatic net landing of a drone onto a moving vessel at sea, converting a twin prop manned aircraft or turbine helicopter into a drone and providing a telemetry datastream in extreme environments such as the Red Bull Air Race.
In addition, UAV Navigation leverages this technology for other innovative products and solutions (check out the 'Solutions' menu above). Examples include: sporting goods, inertial aviation, automotive telemetry, motor and air racing and consumer electronics.
The cornerstone of the Company’s success is a comprehensive, in-house capability to develop Attitude & Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), flight control algorithms and to fuse the data provided by multiple sensors (GPS, airspeed, magnetometers, gyroscopes, accelerometers etc). The autopilots are characterized by their reliability and robustness, with over 50,000 flight hours in all kinds of weather and on all kinds of platform.
If you have a vehicle or platform (aerial, ground or water based) and you need to know its exact attitude, position and relative velocity, then UAV Navigation has the answer. A multinational team of experts with backgrounds as diverse as aerospace, microelectronics, aeronautical engineering and military defence technology brings motion processing technology to new markets.
Founded in 2004, UAV Navigation is an ISO9001-certified company with a worldwide distributor network. Investors include key company employees and Bullnet, a Spanish independent Venture Capital firm specialized in technology-oriented projects: http://www.grupobullnet.com/
