The Aerobear Hardware Project is at the helm of designing, developing, and testing the complete, fixed-wing, airframe that houses all electronics and flight systems needed for robust, autonomous flight.

Our workflow advances per a thorough iterative-design CAD stage, into FEA and CFD which culminates in the final fabrication and testing stages of the project.

Boasting a 9 foot wingspan and 7 foot central boom, Aerobear cruises comfortably at 40 knots for up to 38 minutes on a charge.

A completely custom wing and empennage assembly was important in development for a fully validated design.
