SMALLER FORM FACTOR

IMPROVED AERODYNAMIC EFFICIENCY

With Rotron's small size advantage, UAV manufacturers now have the option to streamline cowlings and improve aerodynamic efficiency delivering improved fuel burn and extending operational range.

For existing platforms, the small form-factor of our UAV engine allows manufacturers to maximise the interior space of any airframe, offering greater flexibility in fuel and payload configuration and ensuring true multi-mission capability.

Rotron Advanced Lightweight Rotary UAV Engines

LIGHTER ENGINE WEIGHT

IMPROVED PAYLOAD FLEXIBILITY

The Rotron UAV engine is a lightweight powerplant that delivers the highest power-to-weight ratios currently available to UAV manufacturers.

The steadfast performance and high horsepower offer faster ascent rates and better dash speeds, while Rotron's weight advantage gives greater fuel load flexibility. Combined, Rotron delivers an engine that enables the same UAV platform to carry increased fuel or payload while extending its operational range and mission capability.

FURTHER ENDURANCE

IMPROVED OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

When out in the field you want the performance without the headaches. With minimal radial and torsional vibration combined with a low internal heat signature and reduced component wear, Rotron ensures increased engine longevity and robust long-term durability. With fewer moving parts, the Rotron UAV engine is more reliable than other equivalent piston engine and offers reduced cost of operation, easier maintenance and a lower logistical footprint out in the field.

Our advanced rotary technology offers increased range capabilities, efficient fuel burn, high endurance lifecycles and low maintenance, thus enabling significant improvement in operational performance.
