Atmos UAV originated from a university project at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (TU Delft). The assignment was to design an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that was able to meet the requirements in the UAV Forge Challenge, an international competition that set out to advance drone technology beyond the state of the art. This included strict design requirements, including vertical take-off, large coverage, ability to make observations on the spot, and all within a limited flight time. The team did extensive research on unmanned helicopters and aircraft, which they eventually combined to take advantage of the best of both worlds for mapping and surveying applications.
Inspired by the practical knowledge gained through this project, encouraged by its success and with the support of the faculty of Aerospace Engineering, the project grew into the fast-growing company it is today.
