Motion Solutions for Drones & UAVs


Drones / UAVs

Drones, which are also referred to as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), are used for a wide variety of applications, including camera systems, agriculture, and logistics. Regardless of the end use,  all drones require extreme agility for navigation and must be extremely durable, given that they are regularly exposed to harsh environments. These UAV  applications demand efficient propulsion to extend operability (i.e. extend battery charge), low noise and low heat signature to remain undetected, and precision control for camera gimbals and other auxiliary applications. 

Portescap's capabilities and motion control expertise provide exceptional motion control solutions suited for responsiveness, reliability and motion precision. Our miniature electric motors provide optimum torque and efficiency in a compact and lightweight envelope and are fully capable of operating in critical environmental conditions.
