Scaled eVTOL Demonstration
NGC has successfully deployed in flight its autopilot system on a scaled version of an eVTOL aircraft. The autopilot system aims at providing “pad to pad” automatic guidance and control capability including automatic transitions from hover flight (powered lift) to cruise flight (wing lift) and vice versa
The ESA PILOT system enables global access to the lunar surface precisely and safely with the realisation of Visual Navigation and HDA functions in an autonomous manner onboard the spacecraft.
LX300 Flight Tests
NGC is collaborating closely with Laflamme Aero and has successfully deployed in flight its autopilot system on the LX300 tandem rotor helicopter aircraft.
Landing Zone Assessment Proof of Concept
A Lidar-based Landing Zone Assessment (LZA) prototype has been integrated onboard a small drone to perform flight demonstrations.
