Profile ID: 17250

Profile type: Business offer

Annotation

Italian company builds autonomous, internal combustion engine, single-rotor drone that can be used in several sector, such as industrial inspection and maintenance of platforms, maintenance and inspection of agricultural fields, monitoring of critical infrastructures and inaccessible areas. The Italian company is looking for distributors and manufacturing partners in Europe

Offer description

Italian innovative company is active as custom-oriented drones builders since 2007. These drones can be considered as mini helicopters to underline how these products, despite their small dimensions, share most of the main features of piloted helicopters. First of all for their internal combustion engines, that allow both great power and a long flight time, and then for the single rotor's aerodynamic characteristics which make them really efficient for vertical take-off devices and also able to fly with wind and without. The drones are custom built according to the particular application’s needs build autonomous, internal combustion engine, single-rotor drone. Its main features are structural soundness, mechanical reliability, efficiency and flight performances, but above all it is able to carry a considerable payload for long flight times. This is the most distinctive prerogative with respect to electric-propulsion vehicles, allowing the drone to be employed within different application fields where today conventional piloted helicopters are used (implying incomparable costs and risks): pipelines and power lines inspection, long-distance transportation of humanitarian aids, permanent surveillance of oil plants or factories. One of the sectors that benefits most from this type of drones is the agricultural one. This drone can spray fertilizers or crop protection products, it can perform aerial surveys to monitor soil and plantation’s health, moreover it allows to carry on the two operations at the same time to pursue precision agriculture purposes, for example distributing pesticides only where needed. All this with a much lower environmental impact and with the greatest flexibility. The standard configuration, featuring a 30 cc two-stroke engine, accepts a 5 kg payload and with 1 kg of common gasoline it achieves 1 h of flight time; obviously this proportion can be adjusted, for example reducing the load to 2 kg whenever possible and increasing the carried fuel to 4 kg, the flight time jumps to 4 hours. The helicopter has anti-vibration mounts beneath the autopilot. These mounts are manufactured according to our technical specifications, which are determined by instrumentally recognized vibration frequencies affecting the helicopter. Without measures that eliminate on-board vibration, sensitive sensors, such as the gyroscopes and accelerometers, are compromised. Power supply is sized to ensure operation for a full day, eliminating the need to interrupt work to recharge or replace batteries. For increased reliability, each device on board has a dedicated independent power supply. In normal operating conditions, the circuit keeps the load balanced between the two lines. If one of the circuits stops working, for example due to battery failure, the circuit is excluded. This maintains smooth operation by switching its power supply to the other battery. Batteries installed on the helicopter are based on lithium-polymer technology because of its unbeatable charge capacity/weight, power output capacity, and the absence of any memory effect. Like all electronics, they are mounted on vibration dampers to isolate them from vibrations and shocks from the helicopter's structure. The Italian company is a startup, but they already had international contract overseas.. Distribution and manufacturing agreements are sought.

Innovations and advantages

The Italian company do not rely on a mass-production, but the offer is deeply characterized by the customization commitment, that is designing and building the devices according to their final purpose. When the characteristics of the job to be done, and thus the minimum specifications of the helicopter, are defined, the company launch the design and implementation of the system that satisfies them. This process can range from a few adaptations of our basic platforms to a complete rearrangement of the whole project. Finally, but this is a factor that often has to be taken into account since the beginning, the company completes the integration of the mechanics and the working load, focusing also on the electronic control that the latter needs. The market of drones is a growing one, but it still doesn’t provide the standards nor the volumes to justify mass-production. Each application has special needs, and this doesn’t allow the presence of one or a few solutions suitable for every purpose.

Сотрудничество

Type of partner sought

Commercial and manufacturing agreements are sought. The commercial partner should be a company or a trade intermediary willing to act as distributor for the Italian start up products, considered that they can be used in several sectors such as industrial inspection and maintenance, maintenance of petrochemical and/or oil platform, maintenance and inspection of agricultural fields, necessities of monitoring critical infrastructures and inaccessible areas and so on. The partner interested in the manufacturing agreement should be willing to obtain the drones adapted for a specific purpose. This process can range from a few adaptations of the basic platforms to a complete rearrangement of the whole project.
