Dragonfly Vehicle Specifications

Type-Single Engine Unmanned / Manned / Remote Operable Vehicle

Trek Aerospace's Dragonfly™ UMR-1 is based on the research done with DARPA and NASA on the Springtail™ EFV. This vehicle was initially designed as an unmanned utility cargo vehicle with over forty-one cubic feet of capacity, however it is equally capable of manned or remote operation. Dragonfly contains the same advanced fly-by-wire, stability augmentation and control systems that have been developed on Springtail. The powered-lift VTOL configuration makes this vehicle extremely maneuverable and agile.

Dragonfly Unmanned/Manned/Remote Vehicle (UMR-1)

In 2004, we began development of our horizontally configured cargo-carrying vehicle, known as Dragonfly. Dragonfly's ability to quickly change its flight options from remote, to unmanned, or manned result in a well rounded vehicle with unlimited potential. With the ability to transport a sizable payload, utilizing a minimal takeoff space, the Dragonfly is definitely a major contender in the VTOL and PAV markets.
