Light, Compact Power Supply Increases UAV Payload

The Customer’s Challenge

PowerA customer was developing an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) carrying cameras to inspect the decks of incoming ships prior to entering a port. Primary power for the UAV comes from a ground-based generator and was distributed to the UAV over a 30m tether, enabling it to be on station for many hours at a time, yet carry a significant payload. An onboard battery provided back-up should the primary supply fail. The power solution also needed to support the backup battery and, as the weight of an aircraft increases the payload capability decreases, so the power had to be as light as possible to allow higher carrying capacity.

The Solution
