MTC Industries and Research Carmiel Ltd. will unveil a reliable and lightweight autonomous electro-mechanical landing system for MALE UAVs. The system simplifies landings and enables minimal maintenance and repair costs.
According to Yair Avni, VP Operations, “We are proud to display, for the first time, a unique landing system based on the Company’s decades of expertise in the development of advanced electro-mechanical products for the Defense and Aerospace industries. The system is an easy-to-use, economical alternative to hydraulic landing systems. A variety of dual modules in the system guarantee the highest level of reliability.”
The system consists of three redundant critical mechanisms that contribute significantly to the system’s reliability, dual coil electrical motors, dual coil electro-mechanical tooth-brakes, and dual control units, as an integral part of the system.
Stroke lengths and power ranges are customizable according to requirements. MTC control system, enabling optimal performance, is also available with the landing system. The system complies with various DoD, military, and NATO MIL-STD and has NGS certification for integration of complex aircraft systems.
“The system can be installed on various UAVs, including current models. Adjustable and customizable according to requirements, it can withstand harsh environmental conditions. The system is currently in the final stages of development prior to delivery to the first customer,” added Yair.
