wide range of special missions capability, with longer term application
to the urban air mobility market.
JetPack Aviation spent millions of R&D dollars between 2009
and 2015, designing, building, and testing a series of JetPack designs
that led to the JB10, the world's first FAA-approved jetpack.
JetPack Aviation's wider mission is to create a range of VTOL aircraft
that will save lives and revolutionize complex special missions.

A
Honeywell breakthrough in compact satellite communications
technology will bring the safety, connectivity
and efficiency trusted for decades by airplane
manufacturers and airlines to three of Pipistrel's new aircraft,
including the fixed-wing Surveyor and both unmanned
Nuuva platforms, the V300 and smaller V20.
Weighing in at only 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), Honeywell's
Small UAV SATCOM system is 90% lighter
than the company's next smallest connectivity system,
yet it brings the same capabilities enjoyed by
larger aircraft to the Nuuva V300, V20 and Surveyor.
This is the first time Honeywell's new system will be implemented
specifically on an unmanned cargo or optionally
manned aerial vehicle and is expected to unlock global beyondvisual-line-of-sight
(BVLOS) connectivity for command-control,
as well as mission-specific data relay.
Satellite communications, or SATCOM, refers to a broad category
of key technologies that connect aircraft to each other and to
operators or air traffic control on the ground via satellites. Traditionally,
satellite communications terminals have only been available
to install on larger business and commercial transport aircraft
due to their large size, weight, and the power required. However,
Honeywell's Small UAV SATCOM system is 30% lighter than competing
options, customizable, and can be installed in different locations
on an aircraft to accommodate a wide range of platforms.
The system provides unmanned aerial vehicles with global
coverage and real-time video streaming to the ground. It also enables
beyond-line-of-sight capabilities, so vehicles can be operated
remotely beyond the operator's visual sight. It can be used
for a variety of applications, including logistics and delivery
services performed by UAVs. Also, the Small UAV SATCOM can
keep vehicles connected even in remote areas or over water
where other ground-based communications systems, such as
4G, are not available.
Pipistrel's Nuuva V300 is a long-range, large-capacity, autonomous
UAV. It will take off and land vertically with battery
power, meaning it does not require a runway, and has significantly
lower operating costs than helicopters. It can carry loads
up to 460 kilograms (~1010 pounds) for more than 300 kilomepayloads,
the aircraft are small, transportable, optionally piloted,
and fast. They have no rotors or lift fans, reducing operational
footprint and complexity, and while JetPack Aviation's initial
focus is on special missions, they have obvious longer-term application
to the urban air mobility market. From 2022, all of JetPack
Aviation's aircraft will operate using zero net carbon fuels supplied
by Prometheus Fuels Inc.

ters (~186 miles), making it an ideal solution for deliveries to
areas traditionally accessible only by helicopter. Its smaller sibling,
the Nuuva V20, shares the same architecture and advantages
of the larger V300, but is designed to serve as a lighter
cargo transport vehicle carrying loads of up to 20 kg.
The Surveyor aircraft uses a fixed-wing design that is designed
to be customized with various sensors and cameras for use in applications
like wildlife management, coastal patrol, traffic observation,
or search and rescue efforts.
Honeywell Aerospace products and services are found on virtually
every commercial, defense and space aircraft. The Aerospace
business unit builds aircraft engines, cockpit and cabin
electronics, wireless connectivity systems, mechanical components
and more. They are heavily involved in the emerging
Urban Air Mobility segment, offering a full line of avionics,
flight control, navigation, radar, communications, actuation,
cooling, motors, and turbo-electric propulsion systems - all
tailored for piloted vertical takeoff and landing, urban air mobility
and unmanned cargo vehicles.
Pipistrel is a small aircraft designer and manufacturer, specializing
in energy-efficient and affordable high-performance aircraft.
With more than 30 years of experience, Pipistrel has designed
nine different experimental and serially produced electric aircraft,
including the first type certified electric aeroplane, the Velis Electro.
It has also developed propulsion systems, including batteries,
power controllers and electric motors, for small and general aviation
class of aircraft for NASA and Siemens, among others.
