Every Pelican features integrated propulsion, navigation, spray and safety systems that are constantly working to ensure each job is done right, on time, and as planned.
Each Pelican is equipped with a multiply redundant power system, including three 25kW electric motors and triple redundant batteries to provide a high level of safety and eliminate single points of failure.
Each Pelican is equipped with a proprietary Pyka Flight Engine. Six processors on two separate computers process millions of inputs per second from the aircraft's forward facing LIDAR, downward facing lasers, redundant IMUs, and redundant air data booms.
Pelicans come with variable-speed electric rotary atomizers coupled with a proprietary high speed centrifugal electric pump. Pelicans adjusts their flow rate and droplet size throughout the flight in order to maximize application efficiency and precision.
The Pelican airframe and structural components are made out of high performance carbon fiber composite parts, corrosion-resistant metallic components, and complex 3D printed assemblies using industry-standard aerospace manufacturing processes.
We set out to develop the world's most capable autonomous aircraft from the ground up. The Pelican uses state-of-the art 3D aerial mapping and dynamic path planning to know where obstacles are and how to fly around them.
Every aspect of our agricultural missions — is handled by our autonomous flight engine. We’ve put our system to the test on over 3,000 aerial crop protection missions — one of the most complex and difficult environments for any aircraft to navigate.
The Pelican can operate from a 450 ft runway, an order of magnitude less infrastructure than previously possible — enabled by Pyka's all-electric propulsion system and autonomous flight engine.
