UAVs are crucial for intelligence and observation, so the launching system is of great importance due to possible challenging circumstances. Sometimes it’s barely impossible to launch the unmanned aerial vehicle from the runway. And that’s the reason why UKRSPECSYSTEMS designed the bungee catapult launcher SCL-1A.

Bungee catapult launcher SCL-1A is constructed to start UAVs with MTOW up to 10 kg at a speed of 25 m/s (90 km/h). It also can perform launches despite harsh weather conditions and in the temperature range from -15° to +40°C.

The bungee UAV launcher functions autonomously and is powered by a lead-acid battery. The quantity of launches relies on the capacity of the battery, its charge, and the environmental temperature, securing up to 9 launches. Also, a car accumulator may be used as a power supply source.

Launch control is performed by the remote wire control panel up to 100 m long. The tension may be altered in two modes: manual and automatic. Also, tension can be tracked by the indicator of the electronic dynamometer.

And one more thing: bungee UAV launcher SCL-1A may be assembled by two persons within 15 minutes.

UKRSPECSYSTEMS offers a complete educational course, involving theoretical and practical training to control the bungee UAV launching system for its clients.
