Gas turbines to power UAVs
Cape Aerospace Technologies (CAT) serves the micro and small gas turbine industry with various propulsion system solutions. The applications vary from model aircraft, high speed target drones and glider sustainer units. The company aims to advance the state of the art within the gas turbine industry so as to place South Africa in a leading position in this market segment.
The sophistication of these gas turbines, and that of the aircraft they power, has blurred the lines of distinction between model aircraft, military- and commercial unmanned aerial vehicles.
CAT owes its success to the meticulous in-house design-to-manufacture process, including engine and subsystem assembly and testing. These processes make use of the latest technology to deliver a product superior in its class.
