Our Research Projects

What we tested

More than five prototypes were created to explore and validate:

  • Ultra lightweight composite structural solutions and construction methods
  • Aerodynamic performance models
  • Ultra low power propulsion systems

Solar Drone – R&D Proto 5

This drone was designed to fly indefinitely under favorable weather conditions.

Solar Drone – R&D Proto 4

This small drone is portable and lightweight (500 grams) but can fly for up to 18 hours.

Solar Drone – R&D Proto 3

Our first solar powered drone capable of day/night continuous flight.


Solar Drone – R&D Proto 2

An experiment with ultralight construction employing a film skin and carbon fiber spars.
