UAV/UAS Capabilities

Platform Aero Drone Facility.jpg

Platform maintains over 10,000 square feet of aviation component and systems manufacturing space, capable of support various UAV, UAS and Pilot-less Drone design, production and modification. We provide small UAV PART 107 Class 1 and 2 flight services for clients who need inspections or systems flow (up to 55 lbs and under 400 feet in Class G Airspace).  Our design and production capabilities and aerial platform support facilities, includes the following:

Design, development and production of light weight-aviation rated, Carbon Fiber components, assemblies, mountings and structural parts.

5 Axis CNC machine and WaterJet for cutting, shaping or bending components from 8-inch aviation-rated steel or aluminum, for UAV replacement and modification components.

Platform owns five Quadcopter Medium Lift UAVs used in the design, development and testing of new sensors and mission capabilities as a proof of concept and functional verification.  We also sell heavy lift UAV's built on Gryphon Dynamic frames, through our Platform Aero UAV Store (www.PlatformAeroUAV.com).  There you can purchase our pre-built packages or Build Your Own drone and configure it yourself.

Tiger Shark

Scan Eagle

Quadcopter Medium Lift UAV

  • GRYPHON DYNAMICS
  • DJI

Experience Includes:

  • In depth aircraft and payload testing, validating platform capacity and performance
  • Ability to consolidate and increase payload capacity, capability and effectiveness through end to end systems engineering and design analysis; while maintaining weight, fuel, on-station time and performance factors
  • Developed and implemented Design and Analysis of UAV as part of vehicle Reliability, Maintainability, Serviceability, Quality Index and payload verification.
Drone operation verification

UAV/UAS Operational Verification

Staff certified to operate, maintain, and verify Tiger Shark, Small Family/Scale UAVs and DJI UAVs and integrated sensors, flight controllers, transmission sets and developer sets.

Qualified UAS sensor operator for:

  • RF Link
  • Video communications
  • Satellite communications
  • EO/IR sensor operations
Platform UAV Denied Environment Mode

UAV/UAS Systems Engineering

Developed and maintain proprietary code for use in UAS Facial Recognition systems, providing high resolution / high definition facial feature capture and communication to ground forces.

Designed UAS capability for operation in Denied Environment Mode. This allows UAV/UAS independent operations over terrain where Global Positioning Services (GPS), Instrument Navigation Systems (INS) and communication signals are denied or unavailable to the aircraft, while in flight.  This allows the UAV autonomous operations and performance of programmed mission functions uninterrupted, based on internal navigation and mission sensors.
