Performance Drone Works (PDW) is a leading developer of high-performance autonomous drones for mission-critical civilian and military applications. Designed to excel under even the most demanding of conditions, our FPV (first person view) and foldable drone platforms provide enhanced efficiency and reduced risk for operators working in highly challenging environments.
C100 Heavy Payload Drone
Long-endurance foldable drone for ISR and cargo deliveries
The C100 is a man-packable heavy-lift quadcopter platform that holds the world record for the longest-endurance battery-powered sUAS. Capable of 80 minutes of flight with payload, the low-SWaP (size, weight and power) autonomous UAV folds into a small rucksack and can be deployed and airborne in under 2 minutes.
The versatile heavy payload drone carries up to 30 lbs and can be equipped with a variety of hot-swappable payloads, including Trillium’s military-grade EO/IR gimbals. The aircraft also features an independent fixed flight camera for first-person view, enhancing operator navigation.
The C100 is built around a modular open architecture, allowing new hardware and powertrain modifications to be seamlessly integrated. The system incorporates DIU Blue-UAS approved flight avionics, as well as an AES-256 encrypted datalink for reliable and secure communication.

Blackwave C2 Link
Wireless C2 radio link for small drones and robots
Blackwave is a tactical wireless radio link for C2 (command and control) of small drones and robotic vehicles, providing robust communications even in highly contested environments.
The triple-redundant system monitors RF environment and intelligently switches to a clean operational frequency to avoid interference. Built-in code-division multiple access (CDMA) capabilities allow multiple radios to operate seamlessly within the same area.

ISR & Recon
With long endurance and the ability to operate day or night under the harshest of weather conditions, our autonomous UAVs are ideal for tactical ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) missions.
Able to carry up to 30 lbs of payload, PDW’s rugged drone platforms can transport vital cargo to hazardous and hard-to-reach places when time is of the essence.
Our versatile drones can be used by law enforcement, SWAT and first responders for a variety of missions, providing critical surveillance, recon and situational awareness for more effective decision-making.
