Beautiful footage of our PD-1 UAV launched from pneumatic catapult and recovered by parachute!
PD-1 UAS can be optionally equipped with pneumatic catapult launcher (PCL) capable of launching drones up to 40 KG. PCL air pump could be either powered by batteries or gas/diesel generator, which ensures autonomous use of the system.
Parachute recovery system could be easily installed and removed from PD-1 UAV based on the mission requirements. Whole system was design, so different components could be quickly replaced "in the field" if needed.
