The UAV Factory LTD are extending their reach towards research and educational users.

They are actively collaborating with research agencies and universities worldwide and due to the special needs of these customers they have compiled a specialized documentation package for our Penguin B UAV airframes.

This specialized package is not a traditional generic documentation package, supplied by UAV manufacturers. The contents of the document package include CAD model of the Penguin B aircraft, engine  test data, user manuals and all geometric and weight data necessary for stability derivative estimation.

Most of this data is not provided to the clients by other UAV manufacturers. This fact considerably limiting the development of the new future applications. With the new documentation package the number and quality of research and educational applications can be dramatically increased.

The potential Penguin B applications for universities include – PhD research projects, student design projects , control system design projects, payload development and testing applications.

One client is also going to use Penguin B as a standard platform for UAV operator training courses.

By combining removable payload modules with the provided CAD model of the aircraft, payload integration  can be considerably simplified.  This is particularly important and beneficial for the applications which  require numerous interchangeable payloads.

After the introduction of documentation package there was an  increased amount inquiries from research and educational market segment clients.

There is a dedicated website page for research and educational applications UAV Factory would like to invite all parties interested in using Penguin B for research and educational purposes to contact them
