EFI Technology specializes in electronic system design and software development for the aerospace & defence industry. Services include engine control systems, data recording equipment and custom software solutions.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an unmanned aircraft system.
The flight of UAV may be controlled with various kinds of autonomy : either by remote control from an operator, located on the ground or in another vehicle, or fully autonomously, by onboard computers.
EFI Technology manufactures several ECU's specifically designed for both rotary and traditional engine powered UAV applications
The R4 ECU is a compact lightweight ECU for UAV engines up to 4 cylinders. It can be fully integrated with the UAV flight control system via CAN bus and features failsafe system redundancy.
The Watchkeeper WK450 is a Remote Piloted Air System (RPAS) for all weather, Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance used by the British Army, provided under a contract awarded in July 2005 to Thales UK.
The Watchkeeper WK450 is based on the Elbit Hermes 450 UAV. The engine is a rotary Wankel engine built by UAV Engines Ltd that utilizes an EFI X3 ECU for its engine control system.
It has a mass of 450 kg and a payload capacity of 150 kg, with a typical endurance of 17 hours. Watchkeeper's first UK flight took place on Wednesday 14 April 2010 from ParcAberporth in Wales. On 29 September 2014, the MoD revealed that Watchkeepers had become fully operational and sent to Afghanistan.
General Atomics is a world leader in proven, reliable Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and tactical reconnaissance equipment.
EFI Technology supplies a wide range of products to GA including engine control systems, mil-spec wire harnesses, lambda monitoring equipment and custom designed fuel pressure regulators.
GA utilize the EFI R8 ECU for engine development programs, engine mapping and calibration and propeller endurance testing.
The Elbit Systems Hermes 450 is an Israeli medium size multi-payload unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed for tactical long endurance missions.
It has an endurance of over 20 hours, with a primary mission of reconnaissance, surveillance and communications relay.
The Hermes 450 is the basis of the British Army's Watchkeeper WK450, development of which started in July 2005 in conjunction with Thales. The engine is a rotary Wankel engine built by UAV Engines Ltd that utilizes an EFI X3 ECU for its engine control system.
