Davis Diesel Development has been working in the field of hybrid diesel for UAV’s, generators and other applications since 2000 and has successfully completed Phase I and Phase II SBIR’s. We have had the privilege to work with and provide operational units to government agencies and aerospace companies that include DARPA, Army, Navy, Redstone, Boeing, Honeywell and Lockheed that includes advanced divisions Lockheed Skunk Works, Boeing Phantom Works and Navy Swamp Works.
All of our advanced work projects in cutting-edge aerospace have produced diesel technology for UAV programs. One of our diesel-powered UAV’s carried a gallon of military fuel and could fly for 24 hours while generating its own onboard electricity and carrying out its own aerial surveillance. We provided 150 units. We produced Cox .010 conversions with generator drives for 6-inch-span micro-UAV’s. These had twin-ball-bearing rear output shafts driving micro-generators to power the radio with the front shaft spinning the prop. We have done work evaluating engines for UAVs and have worked on many other projects using several different sized hobby engines. We have a video available that depicts some of our many projects.
In addition to our over 40 years working in the hobby, we have over 15 years experience with numerous small engine and aircraft projects for military and industrial applications both providing hardware and/or consulting services. No matter what stage your project, we are available for consulting on an hourly basis.
If you have diesel requirements outside the hobby, please contact us directly at 772-202-7824 for more detailed information and access to our video.
