Despite safety and legislative hurdles, the aerospace industry is moving forward to further optimize unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, for commercial use.

Due to UAVs’ increased electrical complicity and demands for greater power output for controls and auxiliary systems, higher power electric generators are being required. Because of their bidirectional capabilities, Calnetix Technologies’ Magnaforce™ permanent magnet (PM) motor generators can provide a robust, compact and light-weight starter and alternator configuration for all UAVs.
