Rotron Rotary UAV Engines

Smaller. Lighter. More fuel efficient.

Rotron Rotary UAV Engines are 4-stroke Wankel cycle rotary engines that are considerably smaller, lighter, and contain fewer moving parts than piston engines of equivalent power output. The engines are fine-tuned to optimum operating efficiency and feature high endurance and power-to-weight ratios. Fuel injection and ECU-controlled altitude compensation are fitted as standard.

Seven standard configurations are available, with custom configurations available on request.

Autopilots, Control Stations & Accessories

Veronte Autopilots for Unmanned Vehicles

Embention’s Veronte Autopilots are a series of high-reliability avionics systems for fully autonomous control of unmanned vehicles (including hybrid VTOL, multirotor and fixed-wing UAVs, as well as USVs and UGVs). The Veronte autopilot automatically adapts to any changing conditions, such as actuator failure or mass changes, and is compatible with a wide variety of sensors to provide autonomous sense-and-avoid capabilities.

The Veronte UAV Autopilot features satellite and 4G connectivity for BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) operations and UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management), meeting DO-178B/ED-12, DO-254B, DO-160 and IP67 compliance standards. Control modes include fully automatic, full manual, assisted manual and combined, all selectable at any time during flight.
