Dropship offers safe landings for Mars rovers

The conclusion to ESA’s latest StarTiger project: a ‘dropship’ quadcopter steers itself to lower a rover gently onto a safe patch of the rocky martian surface.

Spin.Works participated in the project team with its Vision-based relative navigation and H2DAS Hazard Detection and Avoidance System.

Spin.Works’ Autopilot controls first public flight of the PAIC SP1 unmanned aircraft

Spin.Works is proud to announce the successful conclusion of flight tests and first public demonstration of autonomous flight capability of the SP1 platform developed by the Portuguese Aerospace Industry Consortium (PAIC), of which Spin.Works is a member.

The autonomous flight of the SP1 platform was made possible through the configuration, validation and testing of Spin.Works’ autopilot system, internally developed to equip its own unmanned aircraft, such as the S20.

The flight testing campaign took place in October and November 2013 at the Mirandela Airfield, with the collaboration of PAIC personnel.
