Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA)
UCA offer the potential to transport loads of 1kg to 10 tons or more over both short and long distances, on routes that are unfeasible or uneconomical for other modes of transport.
- Moving finished products from isolated areas, unlocking their economic potential.
- Supplying areas with limited transport infrastructure with specific, high-value, raw materials, production equipment and spare parts, needed for the economic utilization of local resources.
- Moving goods on ‘thin’ routes that do not support larger, manned, aircraft. This is especially interesting on long routes, where the efficiency advantage of UCA is greatest.
- Moving goods on routes that would need a stopover at a ‘hub’ airport if served by manned aircraft. Their low operating cost enables UCA to make direct flights with low volumes of cargo. Even with the relatively low cruising speed of UCA delivery speed may be comparable with that of manned aircraft while the hassle, cost and risk of theft or loss involved in processing cargo at hubs are avoided.
- Moving goods on ‘irregular’ routes. Because there is no crew that wants to return home after a working day, a UCA can fly all over the world while only returning to its home base for heavy maintenance.
- Transporting emergency supplies like medicines to disaster areas.
