Currawong Engineering will continue its partnership with AeroVironment Inc. by providing the next batch of High-Performance Velocity Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC) for the company’s JUMP-20 unmanned aircraft system (UAS).

The Velocity H-Series ESC provide unparalleled vertical take-off and landing reliability and high performance thanks to its thermal management, low impedance MOSFETs, heavy copper PCBs, ceramic capacitors and conformal coating for weather resistant durability.

With the JUMP-20 capable of achieving 14+ hours of endurance flight and carrying a payload up to 13.5kg (30 lb), the quality of the ESCs powering the electric motors is paramount given the mission-critical nature of its operations. Currawong and AeroVironment celebrate a years-long relationship that has delivered the JUMP-20 UAV with unrivaled performance, reliability and competitive advantage.
