The first episode of the Powering Innovation podcast explores innovation in tethered UAV systems where power density is in demand
ANDOVER, MA, – November 16 The Powering Innovation podcast focuses on world-changing innovations, examining how electronics technologies can be applied to solve real-world challenges. The first episode in the series features Dragonfly Pictures (DPI), a manufacturer of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems
The first podcast episode takes a deep dive into UAV systems and how DPI is extending communications range 3x with a new class of tethered drones. Joe Pawelczyk, Vice President of Operations at DPI, joins Vicor’s Robert Gendron, Corporate Vice President, Product Development, to discuss the cutting-edge technology driving change that addresses real-world problems. The episode examines the communication networks needed at sea as well as high-security communications, such as in military applications, and how DPI’s technology is far exceeding today’s standards. With drones that can fly up to 400 hours without needing to land, this episode highlights how DPI is taking innovation to new heights. “The Powering Innovation podcast highlight some of the ways we collaborate with our customers to unleash innovative technologies using high density power modules. As we explore unique applications and how they are powered, we expect this episode to be of interest to power designers of UAV systems and really any engineer that is designing mobile applications where power density is a priority,” said Gendron.
