Powering Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
EaglePicher supplies energy storage systems for a number of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) applications. We have the ability to develop products across a broad range of chemistries, allowing us to meet a wide variety of application requirements.
EaglePicher pioneered lithium ion battery system applications in UAVs with the RQ-4 Global Hawk and the Aurora Excalibur VTOL airframes. We achieved another first when we supplied lithium ion batteries for the Northrop Grumman X-47B (UCAS) demonstrator, which became the first unmanned vehicle to operate successfully from the deck of an aircraft carrier.
