PLASMA (FALCON) FLYER 1.11 / 6 - 11 kg MTOW

Electrofluidsystems is developing a novel swarm capable high-tech mini UAV with agile flight performance and the ability for high-altitude flights through active flow control and plasma anti/de-icing on wings and propeller. The PLASMA FLYER or SWARM FLYER is made of a laser-sintered, additive manufactured, ultra-strong PEEK structure with a nanomaterial-enhanced prepreg composite hull with honeycomb core structure. This enables high speed, high g-forced starts from ultrashort pneumatic launchers. 

The world's first plasma flow controlled flying wing UAV has an improved performance at flight conditions which usually would stop other drones from flying because of strong crosswind induced flow separation and instability effects. The vehicles durability to crosswinds was increased by more than 60% and is thus higher than for other mini UAVs. 

The 6 - 11 kg PLASMA FALCON 1.11 has a 2 - 4 kg payload volume (>33%), a powerful 2 kW electric engine for fast vertical climbs after launch, a 360-degree 4K video camera and a rectrable ultra light gyro stabilized long range HD EO/IR gimbal camera. An optional update kit was developed for electric VTOL operations. 

Our AI computer-based SWARMPILOT with six navigaition cameras and the optional blockchain platform SWARMCHAIN will give us an additional customer benefit for more secure communication and coordination of swarming unmanned aerial vehicles (SUAVs). Electrofluidsystems secured different names and domains to be prepared for a market entry in 2021.



PLASMA (RAY) FLYER 1.11 / 11 - 18 kg MTOW

The stingray-shaped PLASMA RAY is an electric VTOL (eVTOL) UAV with 1.11 m wingspan and a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 11 - 18 kg. The deliverable payload weight is 4.0 - 8.0 kg with a 43 cm x 24 cm sized internal transport bay. The near-term vision is to extend the product family to 1.66 m - 2.22 m wingspan until 2022. The AI swarm controller (SWARMPILOT) will enable coordinated flights in half-diamond and full diamond-shaped formations, reducing drag and increasing range by up to 65%.

PLASMARAY 1.11 and H2PLASMARAY 1.11 are plasma flow controlled, swarm capable eVTOL demonstrators for a new class of hydrogen fuel-cell powered, hyperfast air taxis with 6.66 m (900 - 1,000 kg), 8.88 m (1,850 - 2,000 kg), 11.1 m (3,000 kg), 13.3 m (5,700 kg), 18.0 m (10,500 kg) and 19.9 m (13,500 kg) wingspan. The H2PLASMARAY 18.0 Strato and H2PLASMARAY 19.9 Strato will be futuristic near-space tourism vehicles using our novel magnetoplasma jet propulsion to climb to very high altitudes of +30 km, but can also be used as long-range heavy cargo lifters without the additional plasma propulsion.
