Where it all began

Our Work Over The Years

2016

Developed India’s first hovering 125mm span flapping wing Micro air vehicle under the National program for Micro Air vehicles: • 125mm span • 5gms All up weight • Endurance of 5 min • Carries a small camera payload • Composite construction
2015

2014

Developed the worlds smallest 3 phase brushless outrunner motor weighing 250mg, under the National program for Micro Air vehicles for future Nano air vehicles SIATI award for excellence in indigenisation and development of aerospace technologies. Designed and developed a 300mm class Micro Quadcopter for the National competition in Micro air vehicles. The “silver arrow” won the competition and fulfilled all mission requirements.

Micro UAV Propulsion

The heart of any electric powered drone is its power system, and DCE is a global pioneer in this segment. With this strength, we can tailor make electric propulsion systems for any kind of drone- all the way from futuristic nano UAV’s weighing a few grams, to larger drones weighing many hundreds of kilo grams. In 2005, with export markets in USA, Europe, UK, Australia and Japan, and has the widest range of motors for every application area in micro RC.

Sky Scope Mark 1

The smaller Mark 1 version spans just about a foot and weighs in at about 420-500 gms depending on payload. In its basic variant, it is ideal for educational institutions and for the avid hobbyist! Add a full fledged autopilot and a real time High Definition 720p video system and you get a drone that is small and very easy to use giving you instant situational awareness.

Sky Scope Mark 2

The larger Mark 2 design is perfect for surveillance over larger areas and where high quality imagery is needed. Be it real time High Definition video, or videos from cameras like the Gopro and other small (sub 300g) cameras, the larger Mark 2 delivers and with all 3 axis stabilized! It spans under 2 feet and weighing in at about 2.5kgs. Equipped with an autopilot, this one is capable of full autonomous operation up to a range of 5 kms.
