Drone/UAV Launchers

TruLaunch Pneumatic UAV Launching Systems

Portable, lightweight rail launchers for drones

TruLaunch UAV Launcher

The TruLaunch series of high-pressure pneumatic launchers for UAVs feature unlimited launch capacity with multiple launches per charge. The lightweight, durable carbon fibre construction makes the launchers easy to transport and assemble.

With no electronics and no external power requirements, the TruLaunch systems can be deployed under a wide range of conditions, getting UAVs airborne quickly and efficiently. Launch velocities and other parameters can be easily fine-tuned to support particular UAS specifications.

TruLaunch 1 and 2 are pneumatic rail launchers compatible with multiple UAS configurations, while TruLaunch T is a tube launcher that can accommodate multiple canisters or projectiles, and can be deployed on both fixed and mobile platforms.
