AUTONOMOUS AND REMOTE-CONTROLLED MACHINES
Swedish company ACC Group AB
, based in Åtvidaberg, Östergötland, is no newcomer to the field of autonomous and remotely controlled machines. For example, it produces the commercially very successful V8
series underwater drones
, which are now serving ocean scientists and industrial companies literally all over the world.
COMPLETE RANGE OF DRONES
However, Claes Drougge
, founder and CEO of ACC Group
, also came up with the idea of the Thunderwasp heavy flying quad-rotor drone
a few years ago. This is a comprehensive range of modular design drones, powered by piston or turbine engines, but always using a patented propulsion system providing mechanical drive to the rotors.
TURBOSHAFT ENGINE PBS TS100
For the special firefighting version of the drone, the Swedish company chose our PBS TS100
turboshaft engine which caught the Swedish manufacturer's attention both for its small dimensions and its ability to operate at high altitudes. Read more about this project on the pages of Flying Revue magazine
