Plymouth Rock and Sky Power Announce Partnership

UAV Firm Strikes Deal with Engine Manufacturer

Plymouth Rock Technologies Inc., the Massachusetts-based UAS developer, has announced a procurement partnership with German Wankel engine manufacturer Sky Power GmbH.

PRT makes both multi-rotor and fixed-wing UAS, which it markets for use in commercial, military and law-enforcement applications. Its XV fixed-wing VTOL system, capable of beyond visual line-of-sight operations, was launched in February and has been sold to customers in the oil and gas sector. The X1 multi-rotor system is available with payloads that include ground-penetrating radar and X-ray sensors, and an IED de-arming system. The company highlights the exportability of its systems and says its designs are predicated on “wherever possible sourcing from USA/NATO partners“.

We chose to partner with Sky Power because of their country of origin, ISO 9001 certification and [the fact] that their engines can be customized and configured for specific applications, either as a direct propulsion unit, as a range extender in a hybrid configuration, or as a power unit and generator“, said Carl Cagliarini, PRT’s Chief Strategy Officer. “The flexibility ethos of Sky Power is in synchronicity with that of PRT. Having information on exact metrics, such as fuel consumption, engine parameters, and exhaust-gas temperatures optimization means that performance and environmental statistics can be accurately measured and presented for safety based routine service.

As VTOL UAS systems move forward into heavy lift and military service, this engine data is imperative to our military and commercial clients,” Operations Director, Paul Keen, added.
