Give your ideas the freedom they deserve without having to build an entire aircraft with FlightWave’s Payload Partner Program. Get a UAS that can soar where you need it to. Carry your unique payload to the spot you want, whether it’s over land or sea. The FlightWave Aerial Platform features two highly capable airframes - FlightWave Edge™ UAS and the FlightWave Jupiter UAS. These airframes live up to their highest potential when you put your new payload idea in the air. Open source files are available so you can design your own Twist-Lock nose cone. Then your new sensor or camera will easily mount to any FlightWave airframe in seconds. No tools required.

Whether you’ve long been searching for a solution to a particular challenge, or you had an idea spark in your head, FlightWave’s Payload Partner Program is your answer to the question: “How can I make this happen fast?” It’s an exciting way for you to focus on what is important to you, the data. FlightWave’s expertise is in aerospace and design. We focus on improving the airframes, allowing you to focus on your mission.

You’ll find everything you need to start the process in the open source downloadable development kit file, from three-dimensional models to data and power interfaces. There’s no obligation: download the files, and get going!

Want to share your new payload idea with the world. Submit your idea to our FlightWave engineers, once approved FlightWave will review and put your idea into the official FlightWave design certification process.

Once your payload is certified, FlightWave will partner with you in the manufacturing process. Once certified for manufacturing, we will work with you to offer you payload as a swappable option for new and existing FlightWave platforms, as all Twist-Lock collars are interchangeable between airframes. We’ll help integrate your technology, so you can share your sensor with the world.

* Standard non-disclosure agreements are available upon request. FlightWave will not share any aspect of your technology with anyone else under any circumstances with or without an explicit non-disclosure agreement.
