Embention is integrating its Veronte autopilots with Currawong Engineering’s engines, servos and Electronic Speed Controllers (ESCs) for the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) industry.

This partnership will enable Embention customers to easily adopt Currawong’s products without extra integration effort (and vice versa).

“We congratulate Currawong on its excellent ICD information which made the task for integration by our engineering team very straight forward,” said Embention CEO David Benavente.

Currawong CEO, Gavin Brett, added, “I was really happy to accept Embention’s invitation to partner up on this project since both companies have quality and innovation as their core values.” 

Currawong’s quality system consists of robust design and testing procedures for new products and extensive product manufacturing procedures. For example, its powertrain systems have successfully completed the stringent 150 hour endurance test specified in the U.S. Federal Aviation Regulations Part 33 (FAR 33). 

Embention maintains strict validation and verification processes to ensure the high quality of its products, which are designed to meet safety assurance standards according to DO160, DO178 / ED-12, DO254 or STANAG aircraft standards.

The Veronte Autopilot and Currawong product family use CAN BUS to communicate. It provides the complete system with a robust communications protocol that allows the interconnection of all devices in the same CAN Bus network and the exchange of control and telemetry data at high frequencies for optimal system performance.

This combination is designed for large and professional UAV projects. The robust communication protocol provides high immunity to electrical interference and the ability to self-diagnose and repair data errors.
