DRONE AVIATION CORP (DAC): OUR MISSION:
Formed in April 2014 to penetrate the rapidly growing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) business in U.S. and abroad for government and commercial customers.
To aggressively penetrate the expanding Drone market with our unique Tethered Drones, which are currently being fielded to the U.S. Department of Defense and State and Local municipalities. WHAT WE DO:
DAC is a developer and supplier of unique and specialized aerial solutions to the U.S. Government, State municipalities, and commercial entities. WHY ARE WE UNIQUE:
Our Tethered Drones are SAFE and LEGAL to operate under current FAA guidelines. DAC Tethered Drones offer unsurpassed flight duration and security due to power and communications both running through the MilSpec tether line. Free Flying Drones are currently illegal to fly in the U.S. National Air Space (NAS) and have on various occasions crashed into Civilian an areas and recently nearly crashed into several Commercial Jetliners. Our BOLT and SPARK Drones are designed to fly for up to 24hrs and carry specialized Military grade surveillance equipment providing unmatched capability REVENUE DRIVING PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS LINE: * Winch Aerostat Small Platform (WASP)
* ETAP DAC TETHERED DRONE * BiB 50 (BLIMP IN A BOX SERIES)
The Winch Aerostat Small Platform, or WASP, is a mobile, tactical-sized aerostat capable of carrying a variety of payloads in support of military operations.
Common applications include network communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. WASP leverages well-understood aerostat technology to elevate network payloads to an advantaged height to enable persistent network connectivity while reducing risk to units conducting retransmission missions. It is controlled via a launcher operated by Soldiers possessing common soldier skills.
The WASP has participated in a series of the Army's Network Integration Experiment (NIE) and has been recognized as a solution that can support the warfighter.

Blimp in a Box Wind Capable Aerostat
The Kingfisher™ aerostat is named after the kingfisher bird species, known to be the longest-duration hovering bird with exceptionally keen vision to spot its prey. A fitting name for an aerostat balloon designed to provide a stable platform in winds up to 50mph/75kph* and give you unprecedented options for your payload and surveillance requirements. As part of an DAC surveillance system, the Kingfisher is the only FAA approved, urban-flight qualified, lighter than air system available in North America.
There are three main design features that differentiate the Kingfisher from other aerostats:
• Spheroid shape;
• Fabric wing;
• Weight and balance line distribution.
The Kingfisher is the best design for high-wind deployments with an envelope size less than 8,000-10,000 cubic feet of Helium volume. Very large blimps and aerostats, over 10,000 cubic feet, have certain advantages over the Kingfisher. If your requirements are for a tactical, less expensive aerostat that requires signficantly less crew, then the Kingfisher is the choice below 10k HE volume.
The shape of the Kingfisher envelope reduces the wind cross section which results in less drag and therefore increased lift given constant Helium volume. While the Reynolds numbers are relatively low, the shape does result in low pressure at the top side of the envelope. The shape also provides for simplified launch and recovery. Crews of 2-3 people are required for even the largest Kingfishers with 300 pounds of net lift when using the DAC launchers and winches.
The spheroid shape is much simpler to balance with payloads than a blimp shape and does not require a balonet system for attitude management in pitch or yaw.
This is the most signficant and interesting aspect of the Kingfisher. The interaction between the wing, bottom of the balloon and the tether are tremendously important. Recognizing and respecting this importance during manufacturing maintains the integrity of this interaction which results in an exceptionally well-behaved balloon in high winds. The main draw-back of this design is that high winds create significant tether line tension. Some competitors refer to this as "lift". It is not. Line tension from wind should never be considered as part of the net lift calcuations for aerostat sizing.
Benefits of the wing design include:
• Aerostat stability in high and variable winds;
• Soft, flexible material is easier to pack, operate and repair vs. the hard or inflated tails of a blimp;
• Kingfisher aerostat ALWAYS tracks into the relative wind.
Payload weight and line tension distribution
The Kingfisher employs a weight and balance distribution system which evenly distributes payload weight and tether line tension across the entire envelope. Further, the tether attachment method, which we call the Apex, ensures proper flight right out of the box. Unlike the Kingfisher knock-offs available on the market, no adjustments are required by the operator for proper flight. The main consideration is payload mounting as a large wind cross section payload or improperly mounted payload can affect balance.
