The purpose of Hybrid-Airplane Technologies GmbH (HAT) is the R&D activity, production and distribution of sustainable flight systems and communication platforms, in the field of airborne autonomous robotics and cybernetics. The company invented a new way to fly that is completely safe and nearly silent. The flight systems can be powered by renewable energy sources and serve as carrier systems for a variety of sensors for different applications, from live event broadcasting to earth observation. The h-aero® flight systems are used in many fields, such as human and nature protection, public and industrial, infrastructure, as well as environmental. We solved the physical challenge to keep electronic payloads in a maneuverable hovering and suspending state against gravity and with ultra low energy consumption. We solve issues with UAV endurance, safety, acceptance, payload capacity and noise in industrial inspections, earth observation and surveillance.
