Skyfront – UAV Engineers, Pilots and Technicians

Skyfront’s business is growing rapidly and we are looking for talented engineers, pilots and technicians to help build, design and test mission-critical UAVs and create entirely new products.

About Skyfront

Silicon Valley-based Skyfront (www.skyfront.com) is a world-leading provider of long endurance hybrid-electric multirotor drone systems. Skyfront’s flagship product is the Perimeter UAV, which flies for up to 5 hours and can travel up to 240 km. The company utilizes its patented hybrid-electric technology together with state of the art sensors, software and communications links to build drone solutions that are capable of operating safely during missions far beyond line of sight of the pilot.

Skyfront’s mission is to fully automate and reduce the costs of aerial data collection tasks which have been traditionally performed by manned helicopters. Examples of exciting ongoing projects include:

  • Powerline and pipeline inspections
  • Surveillance
  • Maritime and remote cargo deliveries

{articles|100|campaign}Intelligent Energy leads UAV fuel cell power market with launch of 2.4kW module

  • Extends product portfolio to offer a flight duration of over five times that compared to batteries
  • Provides reliable solution for powering heavier and larger UAVs with higher payloads

Loughborough, Tuesday 16 April – Intelligent Energy is to launch a market leading 2.4kW fuel cell power product for the commercial UAV market.

In just 18 months, Intelligent Energy has launched four products specifically designed for commercial UAVs. These products provide a solution to the constraints of battery power and offer minimum downtime and fast refuel, making them a compelling option for the commercial UAV market.

Recently, Intelligent Energy’s 800W Fuel Cell Power Module – launched just eight months ago – was used to achieve a new Guinness World Record for the longest multi rotor flight time, conducted by South Korean company MetaVista. The multi-rotor UAV flew for 12 hours, 7 minutes and 5 seconds using liquid hydrogen to fuel the module. This record greatly exceeds the previous one held for 2 hours, 6 minutes 7 seconds, demonstrating just what can be achieved.

Lee Juby, Chief Sales Officer at Intelligent Energy, said: “We have the lightest and most power dense fuel cells available on the market and we continue to design new and innovative products to ensure we are leading the way in fuel cell power for commercial UAVs.

“Initially, we will be offering the 2.4kW to select customers with first deliveries planned for October 2019. The modules will then be made widely available to customers from early 2020. This latest product can achieve much longer flight times, for example on a DJI M600 frame with a 11 litre 350Bar hydrogen cylinder, a retrospectively fitted 2.4kW FCPM could achieve a flight time of over 2 hours compared to just 25 minutes with its battery power pack.”

Two 2.4kW modules can also be linked in parallel to provide up to 4.8kW of power without the need for additional hardware. The module provides the continuous power to the UAV and is hybridised with a small battery to manage the peak loads. The module can be fitted onto a number of off the shelf frames, however, efficiencies and flight time can be optimised further still on a customised frame.
