UAV and Component Design
DPI has been designing and building reliable, autonomous unmanned helicopters since 1991. DPI can also design, build and test your UAV and/or components. DPI aircraft and component design services include aero performance, structural design, electrical system design, and automation.
For example, DPI worked on the Jigsaw program for DARPA, developed the DP-6 Whisper for the Harris Corporation, integrated a critical EOIR sensor ball into a UAV platform for DRS, and integrated a Harris Corporation comm relay capability.
We provide a cost-effective solution for clients that include Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Harris Corporation, and DARPA. We also work extensively with subsystem vendors, designers, and specialty shops, including Wintec, MicroPilot, Pegasus Servos, Volz Servos, UAVRUS LLC, PEI, Cognitive Eletronics, Cloud Cap, Harbrick, Scientific Systems, LIDAR USA, Microturbo, SAGETECH, Drone Mapping, Compass Systems, PEI, MAXON, SkyTexas International, and many more.Learn more: Contact DPI
