uAvionix develops the world’s smallest, lightest and most affordable ADS-B transponder, Ping. uAvionix’ Ping network system combines hardware, software, and real-time airspace mapping to ena
ble companies to safely and reliably operate drones in the NAS. Based in Palo Alto, uAvionix has gathered a cross-disciplinary team of experts in embedded RF engineering, sUAS operations and compliance, hardware, software, and cloud services.
uAvionix provides the Ping 200SR Mode-S/ADS-B transceiver that allows Air Traffic Control and other aircraft to see where the Rapier is located. It also allows the Rapier to operate in the same airspace as other aircraft
Cloud Cap Technology is a UTC Aerospace company - and the world leader in autopilot technology. Cloud Cap also provides the Launch and Recovery Element (LRE) and Mission Control Element (MCE) software by which we control the Rapier air vehicle. Cloud Cap provides command and control hardware and software to the UAS industry.
Magnix is unique in the power generation industry - creating motors and generators that can produce more than 5kW per kilogram. Magnix provide's the DRACO-2 with more than enough electric power to meet the needs of both the propulsion motors and the avionics - throughout the entire flight.
Let's face it - there is no one better at high resolution, low light, and other specialty cameras than FLIR. FLIR isn't taking their success lightly by resting on its accomplishments - it's continuing to innovate and create even better ways to pear into the dark or to see heat, cold or other energy sources.
FLIR is providing all the cameras on-board the Rapier air vehicle. The images that you see while the vehicle is in flight is brought to you by FLIR - the noted authority on specialty cameras.
The Sensor Interface Computer (SIC) looks small - but it's considered to be the nerve center of the DRACO-2 UAV; it can't move without it. Graduate and undergraduate students from the Computer Science Department are in charge of the architecture, design and software of the SIC.
