HCUAV - Greek civil multipurpose unmanned aircraft designed in 2015 year.




Designing a multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle HCUAV, whose full name stands for Hellenic Civil Unmanned Air Venichle, began in 2013. Considering the fact that in the vast majority of cases only military unmanned devices were designed, while the demand for them was in the civilian sphere, a group of specialists in the field of aircraft and aerospace technologies decided to develop a device suitable for operation exclusively in the civilian sector, Moreover, the new drone was supposed to have a wide range of its capabilities, in particular, its use as a patrol air means, means for Aerial survey of the terrain, the device for advance notice of a fire-hazardous situation, etc.

UAV HCUAV has a sufficiently large size of its fuselage, comparable with a small light-engine aircraft, particularly when the length of the fuselage 4,5 meter span of its wings is 6 meters, however, due to this factor, the device has a high lifting power and may be in flight for a long enough period.


UAV assembly HCUAV


HCUAV UAV is equipped with three types of cameras, including electro-optical camera, infrared camera and multi-spectral camera that allows him to obtain objective data on almost any object of research.

Powerplant HCUAV unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by one piston engine, which is able to attach the device to speed 220 km \ h., While the maximum effective range of the drone is 200 kilometers.
