Precision agriculture promises higher yields while reducing chemical consumption and costs. Flowcopter carries much more payload than battery electric drones, and flies for much longer. Based on rugged off-road vehicle technology without high voltages, it can be easily and safely maintained without specialist facilities.
Flowcopter can fly for more than 6 hours, up to 900km and after a few minutes refuelling, it’s ready to go again. Hydraulic motors are sealed, and are born to function in tough conditions.
Search and Rescue
Flowcopter was inspired by the RNLI’s challenge to innovators: build a companion drone for offshore lifeboats. Our platform is the only UAV capable of meeting the extreme range and payload requirements in the offshore environment. We aim to extend the search time window towards riskier night operation, and not only to spot people in the water, but also deploy a life raft to help.
Flowcopter can support the economies and wellbeing of remote communities with up to 150kg of payload for shorter hops, or up to 900km range with lighter payloads like blood transfusion packs. Our platform is compatible with standard interfaces, and integrates easily into existing planning systems. All without putting human lives at risk and with a pathway to CO2 neutrality.
Spiraling costs and shrinking budgets mean that police helicopter tasking decisions are now highly prioritised – and many operations just don’t get the support they need. Flowcopter’s platform costs a tenth of a helicopter to own and operate, but offer superior range and endurance, even fully kitted out.
