Single-seat electric aircraft with solar cells. Elektra One Solar is available as OPS-version (Optional Piloted System) and UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System).
Elektra One is used in a variety of areas, as a platform for customer-specific tasks. Applications range from GIS mapping and surveys, HD Maps for autonomous driving, construction and monitoring forestry management, erosion evaluations, infrastructure inspections, to archaeological site surveys, disaster management and post-disaster assessments.
Elektra One Solar OPS (Optionally Piloted) is a single-seat electric aircraft with solar cells and redundant autopilot system. The same plane without seat is also available as UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System).Product information
Elektra Trainer is the latest state of the art product for the trainer and education market. The two-seat aircraft is a further development of the Elektra One Solar and was optimized for the light trainer market. Low operating costs, almost no CO2 emissions and the simplest maintenance make this aircraft unique in the field of electric aircraft.Product information
Elektra Two Solar is the two-seats standard aircraft of the Elektra Two family for science and surveillance purposes in high altitudes. The solar-electric aircraft has been designed for extreme records in range, endurance and stratospheric altitudes up to 24 km as well as surveillance purposes from high altitudes.Product information
Based on Elektra Two Solar the company offers the Optionally Piloted System (OPS) for stratospheric flight up to 24 km altitude and day-night missions. The optionally piloted version may be used for unmanned flights or by a pilot for missions where an unmanned flight is prohibited.
Based on Elektra Two Solar the company offers the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) also for flights up to 24 km altitude, day-night missions like border control and homeland security applications. Elektra Two Solar UAS is an aircraft without a pilot aboard. The unmanned version can be flown in countries where unmanned flights are allowed. Due to the lack of a pilot, the aircraft is lighter than the OPS variant. The whole system includes the aircraft, a ground-based control station and a system for communications between both.
We develop almost all key technologies like autopilot and electrical propulsion systems for our aircraft in house. Using our deep knowledge and experience, we are able to offer the main system components for different types of unmanned aerial platforms for our customers. We also configure and deliver for your platform a complete autopilot system including ground control station as well as an electrical propulsion system with batteries and solar system. The autopilot can be configured for single, double and triple redundancy. The electrical propulsion system can be used in single and double redundancy versions. In double redundancy version, the system has two independent motors (mounted on one shaft), two motor controllers and two completely separated battery subsystem. We also offer single components like flight control computers, power supply and distribution units, motor etc.
A close connection shows the cooperation with the company Helix, which manufactures our propellers.
The preparation and conduction of the flight experiments in the R&D projects require significant effort. Instrumentation of the flying platform, integration of the payload, connection it to the autopilot, choosing a test side, acquiring a flight permission, training of the team for experimental work, conduction of the flight experiments, insurance for the equipment – those are some examples of the problems people have to deal with in the R&D projects where flight experiments are involved. With our optionally piloted aircrafts, we offer unique services around flight experiments, payload and other UAS related R & D activities.
We integrate your payload or even navigation/control algorithms into one of our aircraft and perform the experimental flights for you. Our advanced autopilot system allows fast programming and execution of complex missions with precise following of trajectories. The ground control station offers monitoring, control and configuration of the missions including control of the payload. Due to the fact that the pilot is onboard and can take over the control every time, we can perform flight experiments almost everywhere even in the urban areas. Our aircrafts are easy to transport and can be operated also from very small airfields. The members of our team have been participating in many national and international R&D projects for more than 15 years.
