The Austrian pioneer in unmanned aerial vehicles
At the Institute of Aviation of FH JOANNEUM, an emphasis was placed on unmanned aerial vehicles early on. As early as 2007, the first R&D project was completed. Since then, the institute has been working intensively on innovative aircraft concepts, materials and construction methods.
The certification aspects of unmanned aerial vehicles, novel multicopter concepts, experimental and simulation-based studies on aircraft icing and avionics systems, are its fields of expertise.
In addition to fixed-wing aircraft, multicopters with innovative control systems are also used. For its own strategic orientation, the AustrianUCM potential study was as influential as the development and certification of the first JXP-V aircraft.
