We understand the myriad of subsystems, disciplines, and user considerations involved in a UAS and can also provide support in the following areas:
How We Work with You
Developing a quality UAS requires a team with specialized skills and disciplines. You may find you need to supplement your existing team, or add new capabilities. FlightHouse can fill your product development, aircraft conceptual design and airframe development needs. Our on-demand engineering resources are a cost effective way to move your project forward through any stage of development. We team up with industry partners who bring the best in payloads, propulsion, avionics, autopilots, and other critical subsystems to deliver fast and affordable turnkey solutions.
Our Design Methodology
The FlightHouse Design Process goes beyond the classical manned aircraft design disciplines. Our suite of tools and proven processes yields an innovative and balanced design, factoring in considerations unique to UAS, such as cost, mission effectiveness, payload performance, payload integration, upgradeability, launch and recovery, reliability, maintainability, serviceability, transportation, manufacturability, communications, and survivability.
