Development of pneumatic launcher PL-80 for Unmanned Aerial platforms.
ELI has been accepted into the Enterprise Estonia Product development programme. Our project number is EU53839.
Period of the sub-project: 11.02.2020 – 11.10.2020
Amount of support: 41 310 EUR
Description of the sub-project:
Manufacturers and developers of unmanned aerial platforms have clearly understood that the best method of making unmanned aerial vehicles airborne, from confined areas, is a catapult launch. Catapult launch ensures uniform take-off dynamics in all weather conditions and does not place high requirements on autopilots. Catapult allows fast and stable take-off dynamics to unmanned platforms in all weather conditions. And they do not need any infrastructure or aerodromes. ELI OÜ has more than fifteen years of experience in operating and developing unmanned equipment. The catapult launchers created by ELI OÜ are compact and quick to set up and move, and do not require special knowledge to operate. The biggest competitive advantage of our device is the ability to create take-off carriages suitable for various unmanned aircraft quickly and according to the customer’s needs. Namely, all airplanes are different from each other and there is no unified take-off base. Every unmanned airplane must be fitted with a suitable support in the form of a base carriage.
The aim of the program is to develop a pneumatic launcher for Unmanned Aerial platforms with maximum take off weight up to 100 kilograms.
During the project period 11.02.2020 – 11.10.2020 Eli plans to use the funding to further our research and development into unmanned aerial systems launching platforms and introduce to the market new innovative solution with high export value. The Product development programme is funded by the European Union Regional Development Funds.
Eli has been accepted into the Enterprise development programme, our project number is EU52451. The enterprise development programme aims to support well-thought-out development, improved action planning, innovation implementation and product development. In the course of the development programme, each participating enterprise will launch new products and services that are more profitable than their predecessors.
During the project period 2018-2019 Eli plans to use the funding to further our research and development into unmanned aerial systems and introduce to market new innovative solutions with high export value. The enterprise development programme is funded by the European Union Regional Development Funds.
