Innocon – A Success Story and a Technological Tour De Force!
ISRAEL - 14 DECEMBER 2009
Innocon, a young company designing and manufacturing a line of groundbreaking UAVs, unveils its line of remarkable UAVs that share the company’s technological and performance breakthroughs. Established in 2001, Innocon already boasts a record of products featuring technological solutions to challenges that have eluded the global UAV industry since its inception.
Innocon’s line of UAVs range from 6kg to 900kg and feature unique technological solutions designed to meet the needs of various specific missions. Innocon has been able to distinguish itself by its exclusive information management capabilities featured across the company’s UAV line. The company’s core technology computer, the Naviator Flight Computer, is equipped with Innocon’s unique data analysis and control software and provides each UAV with capabilities and flight parameters that set it apart.
The company’s combination of onboard and ground-based computers control and manage all flight parameters including take off and landing, and constitute the lynchpin of the company’s unique UAV capabilities. This core technology is incorporated in every Innocon UAV and both flight computer and ground station are universal, able to fly any UAV on the market. Furthermore, each UAV’s airframe offers the capability to perform tasks that are noteworthy for its weight and size class. The result is broader applications and tasks range for each Innocon UAV.
The Naviator Flight Computer is responsible for all flight aspects including take off and landing. This core technology computer provides the UAV with capabilities that include: Short distance and highly accurate landing, self correction, optimized landing through data collection and processing during flight, 50 meter landing area requirement which is a quarter the distance required by competing UAVs, landing capability on wide-ranging surfaces utilizing a variety of landing gear including wheels, skids, or parachute.
Examples of advantages offered by Innocon’s UAVs include: altitudes and airborne durations of 18 hours and 15,000 feet respectively, normally associated with a large UAV, offered by a 90kg mid size platform, high precision automatic landings on unpaved and difficult terrain, real time airborne information dissemination to multiple systems users, simultaneous data management for multiple platforms with the use of the company’s ground based mission control station, and the list goes on.
With a rapidly growing global UAV market, Innocon is drawing considerable interest from international active participants looking to capitalize on its development in the near term and beyond.
Innocon’s CEO Michael Armon, says, “Innocon is proud of its rapid success in the design and manufacture of superior UAVs in a competitive global marketplace. Using our unique technologies, we’ve been able to offer UAVs that feature truly singular and exclusive, proven capabilities. Our UAVs are able to perform tasks that continue to challenge other UAV companies in their efforts to solve these longstanding problems.” He goes on to add that, “Innocon is a private company owned by its founders. At this time we are looking to leverage our technological and business success to reinforce the next step in our growth. To that end, we’re currently reviewing and weighing a variety of investment and cooperation proposals.”
