Modeling of Small-scale Tilt-rotor Unmanned Air Vehicles
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
DPI will be well positioned to deliver a fully functional prototype in Phase II that exceeds the proposed performance goals of: vertical take-off and landing, endurance of 37.5 hours, range of 3750km. The UAS will be powered by a combination of heavy fuel engines and electric auxiliary motors, and will be suited to deployment from a single vehicle (e.g., JLTV), by two operators. This 150 lb vehicle may enter testing with interim solutions based on blade planform modifications, and will be simply converted to embody conformable prop-rotors for the Phase III demonstration.
