Discovery Telecom represents new generation long range unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) based on tiltrotor concept developed by military Russian startup company.
500+ hours test flights.
“Smooth” conversion – tiltrotor is stable at 20-30m/s horizontal speed and can fly continuously at “partial conversion” – weak point of V-22 Osprey.
Working at harsh weather conditions (up to 22m/s wind, heavy rain and snow, icy rain).
Commercially available accessories are used
IP protected aerodynamic scheme.
Unique control system – tests with 4 pushing and 4 pulling motors have been completed successfully (reliability test).
New solution for higher reliability (patent pending).
Hybrid powertrain (ICE-generator-battery-electric motors):
Automatic (control system) start.
Special design provides advanced thermal management.
Positive energy balance (battery charging during horizontal flight).
Vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL).
Fully autonomous missions.
Hybrid powertrain: internal combustion engine – buffer battery – electric motors.
Different payload options.
Range/payload trade off.
