A Singapore-based industrial company, H3 Dynamics recently unveiled HYWINGS, a hand-launchable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) capable of 10 hours flight duration and distances of up to 500km.
HYWINGS weighs merely 7kg and can cover larger areas of land faster, while removing the need for catapult launchers or runways typically required by larger, heavier and more expensive systems.
‘For UAV manufacturers, HYWINGS demonstrates technology deployed in flight, skipping months or years of testing in the lab, thereby reducing development costs while accelerating go-to-market,’ read a post on their official website.
This UAV experiences a feasibility of 50 to 80 hour electric flight durations in both unmanned and manned aircraft configurations.
HYWINGS is part of growing product line-up at H3 Dynamics, including HYCOPTER, a hydrogen-electric multi-rotor platform and DRONEBOX that is a remotely operated drone charging station which can self-sustain for up to 2 years in the field.
