Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones have revolutionised the aerospace industry, offering autonomous or remote-controlled flight capabilities without the need for a pilot in the cockpit. At Juno Composites, we specialise in the design and manufacturing of high-quality materials used in the construction of UAV and drone airframes.
Our expertise extends to various applications, including last-mile delivery, aerial cinematography, disaster relief search and rescue, mapping/surveying, and agriculture. While carbon fiberre has become synonymous with drone and UAV airframe construction, there are other crucial factors to consider. In this article, we explore the significance of materials and how Juno Composites can provide you with more affordable solutions that offer measurable performance benefits.
Lightweight Your Innovation
One of the key advantages of the advanced composite materials developed at Juno Composites is their ability to offer distinct performance benefits. We have the capability to tailor the strength and modulus of these materials in different directions, optimising them to withstand the predominant loading conditions experienced by the airframe during service. As a result, the airframe becomes structurally efficient and lighter, enhancing overall performance.
Designing with Advanced Composite Materials
Designing with advanced composite materials requires a different approach compared to traditional metallic materials. Unlike fabricating parts from metal, where designers typically select from a range of known metal grades in various forms, designing advanced composites involves a deeper understanding of material behaviour before the manufacturing process begins.
For instance, a designer or engineer would not design and manufacture the sheet or billet of metal that they are using to fabricate their final component parts with. They select from a catalogue of metal grades with known properties available in a plethora of forms, including sheet, plate, panels and billets, where the engineer’s focus is centred on the fabrication of the final component parts. This knowledge gap can create a barrier to the successful integration of advanced composites for UAV and drone airframes.
