Northwest UAV becomes distributor of Veronte Autopilots and accessories

Northwest UAV has partnered with Embention to offer the most advanced and user-friendly avionics systems in the industry. Veronte is the pilot’s choice for advanced professional UAV and Unmanned Vehicle Control. The Veronte Autopilots are an ideal addition to Northwest UAV’s growing list of product offerings. As the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry continues to grow rapidly, Northwest UAV works hard to continue to identify and promote modular building blocks for the unmanned systems that complement their own propulsion systems and other offered services.

“We have developed a strong reputation for providing the most reliable, maintainable, and cost-effective high-performance propulsion systems,” explained Jeff Ratcliffe, NWUAV Chief Technical Officer.  “We are continuing to expand that to other modular building block components for the UAV industry. UAS developers have come to trust our recommendations for components for their UAV, often reaching out to ask us which systems we would recommend. We are very selective about the companies and components that we endorse, and even more selective about what we distribute. We are putting our name behind the products we are distributing and the companies that make them, and our customers and their end users can feel confident putting their trust in us.”

Veronte Autopilots joins the broad spectrum of modular building block products for the unmanned industry that NWUAV offers, both those developed in-house as well as those of other companies. From engine systems and actuators to transponders and now autopilots, NWUAV has worked for over a decade to offer the most reliable, cost-effective, and innovative modular building blocks available.

“When we find the right partners, it’s a win for everyone,” said Joe Gibbs, NWUAV’s VP of Business Development. “We help them expand their business and they help us offer our customers a variety of vetted products that work together. With the growth period that the UAV industry is in right now, a lot of different products are showing up, fast! It can be reassuring for customers to have access to products that they can count on to work in their project.”

Embention’s Veronte Autopilots are a family of high-reliability avionics, communications, and ground control systems for real-time adaptive control of unmanned vehicle systems (UAV, USV, UGV). Since 2007, Embention has worked on developing equipment for unmanned aircraft, and complete UAV / RPAS, including the Veronte Autopilot. The Veronte Autopilot offers automatic adaptability to changing conditions, such as actuator failure or mass changes, and compatibility with a wide variety of sensors to provide autonomous sense-and-avoid capabilities. Other features include satellite and 4G connectivity for BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) operations and UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management). Control modes include fully automatic, full manual, assisted manual and combined, all selectable at any time during flight. Veronte systems are DO-254 and DO-178/ED-12 compliant which simplifies the path for aviation certification.
