SRP LYNX CASE STUDY

Praxis Aeronautics has developed a solar variant wing for the Swift Radio Plane (SRP) Lynx for Australian Defence supplier XTEK to increase the current daytime flight duration from 3 hours to 9+ hours. Flight testing by XTEK and Praxis of the solar Lynx wing commenced in May 2018.


MINIATURISED ON-BOARD POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Praxis Aeronautics has in development a miniaturised on-board power management system (with features not currently commercially available) to complement its lightweight solar arrays for UAV.

Functions and Benefits:

  • Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) - to extract maximum available power from the cells under varying solar conditions;
  • Balance charger - to keep batteries at their highest charge state and optimum performance for longer;
  • Data link - to monitor performance of the solar array, battery conditions and energy usage;
  • Easy integration with any flight controller and ground station.

The system is due to be released in December 2018.
