Cyclogyro rotor technology for high precision manoeuvrability
The Cyclogyro rotor technology is based on the Voith-Schneider-Propeller (VSP), the most agile maritime propulsion system. CycloTech has successfully transformed this technology into a high precision thrust-vector control for use in the aviation industry. CycloTechs first use case for the technology is to enhance existing inspection drones for operations in rough and stormy conditions. The Cyclogyro rotor is used as auxiliary system for superior positioning accuracy and compensation of gust
