Drone swarm control system

Nordluft swarm control system

The company has developed a proprietary highly advanced drone swarm control system for use in its spreading systems, the Nordluft Ground Control (NGC). The system is however built to be easily customizable for other applications. If you are interested in using our drone swarm control system for fully autonomous flights, please contact us for further details.

Key Features

  • Based on hybrid setup where main decision power is held centrally in the NGC, but individual drones have a certain level of freedom for maximum efficiency and safety in a wide range of applications
  • Can be easily customized for different applications such as mapping, spreading on areas, spreading on tracks and cargo delivery.
  • Functions with up to 30 drones
  • Made for drones using the arducopter firmware
  • Full autonomy, no manual control needed during flight
  • Full communication link up to 40 km
  • Based on a modified version of MAVLink protocol without dependencies

Heavy payload drone platform

Nordluft has designed a drone platform, NordKopter, for use in its spreading system. The drone is designed with high energy efficiency, cost effective and robustness in mind.

Nordluft is currently developing this drone platform for long endurance applications, e.g. cargo deliveries during natural disasters and surveillance. For detailed specifications and inquires, please get in touch with us. 

Key Features

  • 30 kg payload capacity
  • 50 min flight time without payload
  • 20 min flight time with full payload
  • Made for Nordic weather conditions
  • Customizable
  • Custom made Battery Pack solution

Forestry and agriculture spreading systems

The main focus of the company is high capacity drone-based spreading systems. Our systems are the first solutions capable of competing with tractors and helicopters on spreading capacity, but at the same time offer all advantages associated with drone technology. This results in significantly reduced spreading costs.

Key Features

  • Works independent of ground conditions
  • Does not cause any damage to land, such as soil erosion or compacting
  • The high capacity design together with optimized system logistics allows for quick and cost-efficient spreading
  • Environmental focus by being driven by renewable based electricity
  • Enables a more efficient logistic chain with fewer transports
  • Compatible with various sensors for precision spreading

A key to the logistic efficiency of the drone based spreading system is the base station. It holds the drone swarm, the control system, material refilling technology, and all auxiliary equipment. It also includes a massive cargo space for the load to be spread. This complete turnkey solution results in fewer transports and lower costs of spreading.

Initially the systems will be adapted for use in forestry and later agriculture with a first focus on fertilization and ash recycling. However we can customize spreading systems for all applications where material needs to be distributed up to 10 km from base station position.
