OFFENBACH, GERMANY, September 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Textron Systems Unmanned Systems division has been utilizing Volz Servos' DA 15-N actuators on their Aerosonde Mk4.7 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) since 2010 supporting US DoD ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) services contracts. To date, the Aerosonde SUAS has achieved over 200,000 flight hours with Volz Servos and a large portion of those flight hours were achieved with the advanced Volz DA 15-N servo to actuate the air vehicle's flight control surfaces and engine throttle. The DA 15-N servo is a 15mm / 0.59" wide "micro actuator" with brushless motor and contactless, wear free position sensing making the DA 15-N immune to wear, vibrations and shock loads. It has especially been designed for the usage in harsh environments and for safety critical applications that require an actuator with high endurance.

"Textron Systems Unmanned Systems' Aerosonde SUAS success and significant in-theater-flight-time is a great program to prove the reliability of our servos," said Phillipp Volz, Volzs' CEO. "Textron Systems' utilization of the DA 15-N servo is a significant contributor to the Aerosonde system's best-in-class reliability and operational availability." Volz products continue to evolve to meet the requirement of even the most demanding applications.

Volz Servos is a privately held company which has been designing and producing advanced actuators in Germany since 1983. Volz provides actuators which are used in the aviation, aerospace, robotic, automotive and medical industries. They are used on several global UAV applications meeting performance, reliability and durability requirements that cannot be met with off-the-shelf remote control (RC) aircraft servos.
