The Czech customer Liaz asked for our assistance and we at Pegasus Actuators are now serving another most promising European uav project with our servo actuators.
The SkySpotter 150 VTOL UAV is a fully autonomous and independently operating unmanned helicopter system, providing multiple advantages such as:
With the investment into a 3-axis milling machine with optional 4th axis as well as hiring highly trained and experienced personnel Pegasus Actuators now has the possiblities to enhances its in-house production capabilities and gain more freedom for individualized customer solutions of our products. The new possibilities of shortening the development time from an early sketch to the final product using methods from rapid prototyping with 3D-printers to CNC-machining unfold a whole new era of development and manufacturing to our engineers to raise the bar for benchmark actuators made in Germany.
Shortly after, the LFMT made a breakthrough by initiating two new, UAV-design related projects: The DELAER RX-3 and the MPU RX-4. The RX-3 is a tactical UAV that will be able to cover large-scale surveillance missions and swiftly deliver 50kg of useful payload via airdrop in times of crisis or rescue missions, whereas the RX-4 is a micro, versatile UAV that will be able to cover surveillance-related missions at almost any terrain using its novel VTOL and hovering capabilities.
The three robotic unmanned airborne systems, RX-1, RX-3 and RX-4, were presented at the Thessaloniki International Fairs (TIFs) that took place in 2016, 2018 and 2019, respectively.
Pegasus Actuators supplied the control surface actuators for those systems.
Professor Kyros Yakinthos, Director, Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics & Turbomachinery Department of Mechanical Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki had this to say about us: "Thank you guys! I really appreciate your support and your will to help us!"
Pegasus Actuators GmbH supplies redundant servo actuators to the Technical University of Darmstadt, Flight Systems and Control Technology for the SiFliegeR aerospace research program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.
The company owns and controls various intellectual properties and, in additionally to the aircraft offers rights for system components, such as engine and autopilot. The aircraft are available as optional piloted (OPS) or unmanned (UAS) versions. Depending on the payload, the aircraft are used for scientific and surveillance tasks.

Pegasus supports the "FVA" i.e. Aviation Association of the technical university Aachen and their FVA 29 project with PA-R-250-8 servo actuators. The project comprises the development and integration of a retractable propeller / electro motor / assembly and a battery unit into a ASW 28-18 glider aircraft.
