A Taiwan firm is soaring to new heights in the unmanned aerial vehicle industry
on the strength of its state-of-the-art technology and an R&D team boasting extensive experience in the military aircraft industry.
Carbon-Based Technology Inc. (UAVER) has produced fixed-wing UAVs made of composites since its establishment in 2007. The Taichung City-based outfit’s drones are used in such fields as aerial mapping, agricultural survey and forest monitoring.
UAVER Chairwoman Lu Ching-wen said the firm’s No. 2 ranking in the global market is down to an innovative and experienced team taking great pride in thinking outside of the box.
“My husband and General Manager Lin Cheng-yun assisted the ROC Ministry of National Defense in developing the Indigenous Defense Fighter for more than 20 years,” Lu said. “Many of our employees developed their know-how and expertise while working for National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology.”
This rich knowledge and talent base is reflected in the popularity of UAVER’s Avian RTK. The drone can fly at speeds of 63 to 81 kph and photograph an area of 6 square kilometers. [FULL STORY]
