 Project objective

With a market value of USD 18.14 Billion in 2017 and projected to reach USD 52.30 Billion by 2025, Unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), colloquially called drones, are defined as “an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond the line of sight”. However, their widespread implementation is restrained by the noise and obtrusive appearance limitations of commercialized technologies in either flight range or usability. For this we, Flygildi, developed SILENT FLYER: “An entirely new drone design solving the greatest problem of surveillance -to see without being seen”. SILENT FLYER is a Small UAV (or small unmanned air system, SUAS), which is an autonomous flapping wing bird-like robot. It looks like a bird and flies like a bird: It uses flapping flight for lift and propulsion instead of propellers. It will revolutionize the drone’s market by introducing the first UAV that combines silent flight (<70dB of noise emission) and bird-like appearance while incorporating accurate vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities to operate in turbulent weather conditions. SILENT FLYER can fly for >40 mins under favorable conditions (due to the ability to utilize wind currents during soaring, like a bird) and >300m maximum altitude of operation and do accurate landings relative to the ground. This makes it the perfect solution for 1) Civil use and surveillance, 2) wildlife photography & research. Moreover, SILENT FLYER will also represent a great boost for our company, not only regarding revenues, but also for our staff, since we plan to increase our staff a 120% from 8 to 18 people, in order to reach our production needs.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "SILENT FLYER" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
