Fully Autonomous

The Cyclopic U-MPV is a multipurpose 

vehicle which is an unmanned aerial system (UAS) which will have extended mission duration by operating on the ground for periods of time. 

When functioning as an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) it will be an

all-terrain ground-based vehicle because of the UK patented electric drive-system that provides electrically controlled height adjustment and vehicle levelling system. 

The rotors fitted into the centreless wheel provide a UAV application as the rotors can operate as propellers. One unmanned vehicle providing three functions.

The drive system consists of an electric powered motor connected to a

right-angled drive into the centreless wheel, this gives space for mounting UAV motor and propellers. The drive system is placed within a chassis/frame to allow for drive, steering and suspension. It produces zero carbon emissions and complies with government policies and plans.   

Within the hollow part of the wheel is fitted an electrically driven lift rotor. Enabling the centreless wheel to operate.
 

  • Unique height adjustment feature - 0 ground level to 4x4 greatest ground clearance.  

  • 360 degrees wheel manoeuvrability - parallel drive. 

  • Advanced levelling of the wheel: negotiates obstacles vehicle remains level 


The drive unit would transform from a Y/X axis to Z axis for the UAV to operate. Having a unit compromising of all the required parts makes it a compact and unique space saving design and providing a platform to perform at all 3 operations. 

All Terrain

Cyclopter can transform its movement from fly mode to drive mode . It also runs on flat surfaces and all terrains. Cyclopter's ability to change from UAS to UGV will help reach (enabling battery charging) extending battery life for longer flights and operations. 

The compact UAS will have the ability to operate under a vehicle, in a confined space, at low level. The unique height adjustment of the electric drive-system will keep the vehicle level in all types of terrain aiding variation in traction and elevation.  

The Cyclopter will operate efficiently in a high-obstacle enviroment because of its multi operational ability, e.g surveillance confined space with the ability to deplay repid flight mode if required.

Multi-purpose UAV with 3 functions creates less storage compact device that operates in air/ground/marine environment. The light agle U-MPV provides an integrated design; centreless wheel for drive provides casing for the rotors. This multi-function capacity helps with light -weighting. Less storage required with the U-MPV as the vehicle can cover air, ground and marine applications. 

The added marine application adds an important benefit over existing low cost UAS/UGV. The rotors operate as propellers giving an unmanned surface vehicle - (USV) capability (water-borne). Covered propellers are also favourable on operations; less likely to get caught-up -less maintenance . Covered propellers are safer.
