Our Technology

Explore how the Nordluft system works and about the technologies we offer

The Nordluft system

The Nordluft system is a high capacity drone-based spreading system. The system combines all of our technology into one effective solution.

Our system is the first solution capable of competing with tractors and helicopters on spreading capacity, but at the same time offer all advantages associated with drone technology.

Key Features

  • High Capacity spreading capability
  • Using drones 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
Nordkopter

A key to the logistic efficiency of the Nordluft System is the Nordluft Base Station. It holds the NordKopters, the NGC, 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 the costs of spreading.

Initially the system will be adapted for use in forestry and later agriculture with a first focus on fertilization and ash recycling. 

However the Nordluft system is customizable for all applications where material needs to be distributed up to 10 km from the base station position.

NGC - Drone swarm control system

Nordluft swarm control system

The Nordluft Ground Control (NGC) is a highly advanced drone swarm control system mainly developed for spreading. The system is however built to be easily customizable for other applications.

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
  • Customizable for different applications such as mapping, spreading over 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
  • Safety features for operators

NordKopter - Heavy lift drone

NordKopter is developed for the Nordluft system and customized for spreading applications. The drone is designed with high energy efficiency, cost effective and robustness in mind. NordKopter can also be used in various long endurance applications, e.g. cargo deliveries during natural disasters and surveillance.
