Tyto Robotics supplies high-precision testing solutions for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones which allow defense and aerospace OEMs and technology developers to maximize the efficiency and performance of their unmanned aircraft designs.

We’ve just launched the company’s Defense Advancement supplier profile, which has been written and built by our team in collaboration with Tyto Robotics to showcase its state-of-the-art drone motor and propeller thrust stands and wind tunnel testing systems.

Windshaper Wind Tunnel Testing for Drones

Tyto’s windshapers are open air wind generators that can be easily integrated into your own lab to provide an alternative to wind tunnel testing. The modular and scalable system is based around blocks of nine fans measuring 10 by 10 inches, and can be customized to meet unique drone flight testing requirements.

The included software allows users to control each fan individually with simple commands, generating wind conditions that closely mimic the real world. A wide variety of parameters can be customized, including windflow speed, shape and direction, turbulence, convergence, and tilt angle. Learn more>

thrust testing stand

The Flight Stand 150 is the largest COTS drone thrust stand currently on the market, allowing manufacturers of military and government drones and eVTOL aircraft to precisely characterize and evaluate the performance of motors and propellers. The thrust stand provides the ability to measure up to 150 kgf of thrust and 150 Nm of torque.

A solid-state design with no moving parts between the motor and load cells ensures frictionless measurement, and the stand’s ultra-compact profile provides minimal airflow disturbance. A variety of different configurations can be tested, including single-motor, back-to-back dual motors, front-to-front dual motors, or offset dual motors. Learn more>

Tyto also provides professional thrust stand solutions for defense and aerospace OEMs that cater for drones of all sizes.

The stands allow users to measure thrust and torque, as well as a variety of other parameters including RPM, current, voltage, temperature, propeller efficiency and motor efficiency. The stands feature load cells calibrated to ASTM E74/E2428 standards, providing precise measurement (+/-0.5% of the measured value) and enabling highly accurate characterization of drone propulsion systems.

All drone thrust stands are bundled with Tyto’s advanced data acquisition software, allowing users to easily and intuitively control the stand, log data, and automate testing. Learn more>

Distributed Electric Propulsion Testing Solutions

The company’s distributed electric propulsion test platform enables developers to connect up to eight motors and propellers simultaneously, providing realistic simulation of real-world drone powertrain designs. 

The system enables a wide variety of critical testing capabilities, including vibration measurement, evaluation of ESC responsiveness, characterization of components, and more. Learn more>
