Poeir Jets Develops First Heavy-lift Hybrid Drones

Following the successful launch of the country's first Microjet Engine series, Poeir has moved on to develop India's first Heavy lift Hybrid drones, which was launched at Aero India 2019. With this launch, the company aims to establish itself as industry leaders in providing propulsion solutions to UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems).

 The Heavy-lift Drones are fundamentally unmanned aircrafts with fully customizable payload options that make them suitable for a wide variety of professional applications, from Law Enforcement to Search and Rescue Operations. The company has developed the following models of heavy-lift drones:

 Hybrid Drone DRE 4 is a Hexacopter powered with 4 kW APU and took its first flight in 2019. It has the capacity to lift up to 5kg in a flight time of 60 minutes.

Turbo Shaft MTS 30 is under-testing for Hybrid Drone DJE 30 and Urban Firefighting. It is suitable for multirotor craft weighing up to 200kg.

Hybrid Drone DJE 30 is again a Hexacopter powered with 30 kW APU, currently under flight testing. It can take a payload of 75kg with a mission duration of 120 minutes.

Urban Firefighting Hopper is specially designed to restrain fire in high-rises. The hopper is jointly developed by Poeir Jets and Drone Hopper, a company in Spain. It can take a load of 180kg with a mission duration of 60 minutes.

 These battery and turbine engine powered drones are suited for the global market in the fields of Heavy-Lift Cargo, Civil, Agriculture, Forestry, Defence and other strategic applications. The drones are easy to launch, assemble, service and operate. To ensure reliability they are undergoing rigorous in-house testing and are expected to be ready for the market by 2021.
