Tecnologie Elettriche e Radar per Sapr Autonomi

TERSA aims to develop a prototype of fixed-wing RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aerial System, SAPR in Italian) with a max take-off weight of 35 kg  with the following characteristics: 

  • Electric propulsion system of high flight autonomy; 
  • Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for surveillance missions even in hostile climatic conditions; 
  • Sense&Avoid system, consisting of a dedicated miniSAR and a video camera, able to identify fixed or moving obstacles and maneuver to avoid them; 
  • Leading partner: Sky Eye Systems ; other partners: UNIPI (DICI+DESTEC+DII), Free Space, Echoes, Carbon Dream.

Funder: MISE (Accordi per l’Innovazione), co-financed by Regione Toscana
Budget: ~7.2 M€ (UNIPI: ~2.2 M€, DICI: ~9.9 k€, DESTEC: ~8.3 k€, DII: ~4.0 k€)
