Designing and producing UAVs since year 2000:

Since year 2000, CATUAV team has developed more than 35 different UAV platform models, including fixed-wing, VTOL, helicopter and multirotor platforms. We have experience both with fuel and electric engine, even including the participation in solar UAS research projects aiming for unlimited endurance. We have equipped our systems with all sorts of automatic pilot, including open-source and commercial solutions, and we even developed our own automatic pilot back in 2005.

All this experience and acquired know-how allows us to completely develop and produce new custom UAS, that properly meet the user requirements when the solutions already available in the market are not enough.

If you want to know more about CATUAV capabilities you can read about some of our most relevant projects below or check our know-how list.

EXO C2-L - 2019

EXO C2-L – 2019

In May 2019 we received from our sister company Exodronics the order to develop a small fixed wing drone that gathered the best performances possible with the current state of the art. We decided to use for the first time a Li Ion battery and a very efficient airframe and propulsion system to maximize system endurance. The EXO C2-L has been designed to be operated fully autonomous from take-off to landing. It also integrates the ...

ALDRONE - 2015

ALDRONE – 2015

Today there are 110M landmines deployed in 78 countries, including in Europe, killing up to 20,000 a year. The removal of landmines is slow and manual, dangerous (for every 5000 mines cleared 1 worker is killed and 2 injured), and costly ($300–1000 to remove 1 mine). In the past 5 years less than 1000 km2 worldwide were cleared of mine. At this pace it will take 1100yrs to remove all the landmines. To meet these ...
