We have two key projects and a pipeline of ideas at an early stage of development. All key work is undertaken at our Laboratory at Begbroke Science Park.
A small scale drone based on a dragonfly. Flapping wing propulsion offers significant gains over multi-copter drone designs, enabling the vehicle to tolerate higher winds, achieve lower power consumption and fly over an increased range.
A highly versatile logistics unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV, designed to transport heavy loads in relation to the vehicle size and weight, and capable of covering large distances. The wing design is based on deep study of soaring birds.
A flapping propulsion water-based vehicle. Building on scientific insight into fish and cetacean movement is leading to efficiency improvements over traditional propeller designs.
