Focus on research

Drones in Maritime and Agricultural Applications, VIVES University College

The Litus project is a 4-year research program concerning the development of a new drone platform by the Aviation Research Group of the VIVES University College in Belgium. It is developed together with educational, research and industrial partners. The drone platform is aimed at performing scientific missions along the coast line above the North Sea.  The main performance requirement of the 85kg UAS is a range of 160km with a payload up to 5kg. An electric propulsion system has been selected in order to minimize the environmental impact during operation by avoiding gas emissions and reducing noise emissions.

Designing, developing and testing of an entire drone from scratch required a multidisciplinary approach. Parallel research was performed by researchers, professionals and students.
