Custom UAV Power Generation

NWUAV Designs and Develops Generator Systems, and Generator Control Units for a variety of applications.

In addition, we develop the weatherization enclosures needed for unmanned vehicles (Air, Ground and Maritime) to operate in inclement conditions and at temperatures and altitudes.

Frequently UAV Power Generation Systems are expensive and prone to failure; NWUAV has developed several technologies needed  to produce a long-life system for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Power Generation.

NWUAV combines our proprietary technology with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology to produce custom power generation systems that enable efficient operation, while reducing the electrical noise signature produced by these systems.
