Fully programmable

PD-1 Pro comes with advanced autopilot system which allows doing fully autonomous flights on the pre-programmed route, do specific actions (e.g. take photos at the certain point, turn on/off equipment on board when needed), do automatic take-off and landing, automatic launch from a pneumatic catapult, parachute recovery and much more.


PD-1 Pro equipped with quiet and reliable 2 cylinder 4-stroke engine with electric starter/80 W generator system that can automatically start the engine and power up all equipment on board during the flight. RPM, temperature and fuel level sensors come as standard equipment.

Modular design

Modular design allows to easily and quickly replace all airframe parts, engine unit, payload, and other equipment on board. The aerial platform can be converted in the field from fixed-wing configuration to VTOL in just 15 minutes.

Payload capacity

Payload area is big enough to fit dual-sensor gimbal and photo camera, any other similar equipment or a package delivery system (box for needed cargo (600x243x223 mm).

Combat proven solution

PD-1 Unmanned Aerial Systems are currently on service in Ukrainian Armed Forces. Our solution has received positive feedback from Ukrainian Army officers, drone operators, and intelligence agents

100 % composite

The airframe is our own in-house solution and composed entirely of composite materials (carbon fiber and fiberglass).

About The Company

We founded the company back in 2014, at the very beginning of Russian intervention in Eastern Ukraine. At that time, Ukrainian army had zero drones, that were ready for full-scale war deployment.

Drones, manufactured by foreign companies were excessively expensive. To add to that, it’s been technically impossible to import them to Ukraine, due to complex custom restrictions.

As soon as we realized this problem, we immediately began our own drones production. Partially borrowing features of misc recreational drones and quadcopters, and keeping close touch with our military advisors, we eventually managed to complete our first own unmanned flying vehicle. It was designed specifically for military purposes.
