UAV Navigation and Zanzottera team up

24th September 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UAV Navigation has announced that it will collaborate with Italian engine manufacturer Zanzottera for the UAS market.

The cooperation will enable the companies to provide turn-key solutions to UAS platform manufacturers looking for a fully integrated engine and autopilot solution, with engines manufactured by Zanzottera now able to be controlled by UAV Navigation autopilots.

The ability of UAV Navigation’s Vector autopilot to allow two-way transmission of critical data between the autopilot and Zanzottera Engine Control Units (ECUs) has been tested to ensure full compatibility.

The teaming will help meet increasing demand for internal combustion engines to be used to power UAS. In order to allow the autopilot - and by extension the operator - to control such an engine it is vital to ensure correct communications between the autopilot and the ECU, which provides throttle control and feeds back important information to the ground control station about the engine's performance and status.
