How is Edison Aerospace turning aUAVs into a true GA-aviation replacement by making them safer?

  • Auto-pilots certified for commercial use with multiple levels of hardware redundancy
  • Motor-battery isolation, ensuring that cell or motor failures will not affect the remaining powerplants
  • Software-based failsafe protocols that force aircraft to return to base and loiter in case of link failure
  • Multiple redundant control surface actuators
  • Pilot-in-the-loop design – certificated pilot has eyes on the controls from the ground station, ready to intervene in case of emergency
  • Autonomous operation to reduce operator fatigue that claims the lives of GA-aircraft pilots
  • Data logging and live telemetry to help identify problems before they go from squawks to emergencies
  • Remote radio data link encryption
  • Primary mission is within VLOS guidelines, but Edison will pursue all future BVLOS certifications to expand the usefulness of our aircraft
  • FAA Certification process has begun – this will include repeated safety inspections of the prototypes to ensure that the final approved design we manufacture for you will be the safest possible
