Project Description

Digital Aerolus Aertos 120™ Drone Ducted Fan Design

Aerodynamics Analysis, Design & Testing

DARcorporation provided engineering services on the ducted fan for the Digital Aerolus Aertos 120™ drone, in which aerodynamic issues are identified, a new rotor/duct assembly is designed and its performance is tested.  As a result, power consumption for equivalent thrust is decreased, which is proven by repeatable and verifiable measurements.  This leads to improved vehicle handling as well as augmented mission metrics, such as endurance and range.
