Bental teams with 3W International to create new UAV power pack

19th May 2009 - 10:23 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bental Industries, Israel’s defense industry leading motion and power systems supplier, has entered into a cooperation agreement with Germany's 3W International to integrate Bental's G032 Starter Generator on 3W's 157ccm UAV engines.

The companies will market the new turnkey power pack solutions jointly. The integration creates a complete system with new capabilities. Bental has successfully integrated its Starter Generators with 3W engines in the past and the resulting cooperation agreement aims to reinforce the companies' working relationship in order to produce a comprehensive solution and a superior product. The system will be presented at this year's upcoming Paris Air Show at the Bental Industries booth located in the Israeli Pavilion.    
Bental's G032 Starter Generator is part of the company's newest line of unified starter generators.  These generators first start the UAV's main motor then provide power to the rest of the systems which require a power source including the battery. By combining these commonly disparate functions into a single unified system, substantial weight and volume reductions are achieved while the platform's endurance and ground operator's safety and ease of operation are increased. The system chosen for integration on the UAV's engine is comprised of a slim design outer rotor starter/generator, GCU (Generator Control Unit), and drive control for the starter mode unit.

Speaking about this agreement with 3W, Michael Armon, Bental's VP marketing & sales points out that, "With this agreement, Bental and 3W are combining forces to present a unified solution able to enhance UAV performance parameters by creating a power package which is both more capable and more economical. We believe that the resulting product, will lead to increased sales for both companies worldwide".
