PD-1 VTOL Fixed-Wing UAV Module

Hybrid VTOL Fixed-Wing Drone

PD-1 VTOL Fixed Wing UAV

The PD-1 VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) module is a conversion kit for the PD-1 UAV, allowing any PD–1 drone to be adapted to allow vertical take-off and landing. Four additional electric motors can be quickly installed on the fixed-wing drone, without having to return the platform to the factory – this upgrade can even be carried out in the field.

The VTOL module increases the wing span to 5 meters, and the maximum flight time is 8 hours with 7 kg of payload and a full tank of fuel.

With fully automatic take-off and landing functionality, the PD-1 VTOL UAV is easy to operate and ideal for maritime missions, particularly if the drone operates from a ship deck.

Drone Package Delivery

We offer a unique package delivery module for the PD–1 UAV. It can carry a payload of up to 7 kg in one or separate containers, which can be dropped from the UAV by parachute during flight.  The container size and shape can be customized according to specific applications.

Applications include: 

  • Fast supplies and ammunition delivery to military units: container holds more than 500 pcs of standard .223 rifle cartridges;
  • Deliver medications to remove areas: container holds four P650 UN3373 packages;
  • Coast guard: carry two self–inflating lifesaving buoys to help people in need.

Pneumatic UAV Catapult Launcher: GLS-1A

Launch UAVs remotely, without runways

Pneumatic UAV Launching System

The GLS-1A is a pneumatic catapult designed to launch UAVs with a take-off weight of up to 40 kg at a speed of 17 m/s (61 km/h). Achieve launch speeds of up to 22 m/s (79 km/h) with lighter MTOW UAVs.

Powered by a gasoline generator, the GLS-1A pneumatic catapult is compatible with many UAV platforms, and allows drones to be launched from remote areas in various weather conditions, with an operating temperature range from -25° to +40° С.
