In the online Research and Markets, an article on UAV launchers (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/publication/m5dxe67/drone_launchers_market_shares_strategies_a) makes the following point: “Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the drones market increases, bringing the need for launchers that do not use an airfield to get the aircraft airborne. Launchers provide a way to automate surveillance of wide areas and implement strategic military missions that strike at terrorists without injuring civilians.” “This is exactly what we have been doing”, said a Hood Tech representative. “For the past decade we have been building a launcher that eliminates the need for a runway, allowing the Navy of the US, the UK and elsewhere to launch UAVs from shipboards.”
When in 2002 Hood Tech began producing innovative UAV launchers and retrieval systems for small UAVs, those innovations enabled the elimination of runways. This freed aircraft for shipboard use, for deployment in irregular or disrupted landscapes, and for other difficult locations. Showing their ruggedness and reliability, Hood Tech launchers have initiated tens of thousands of flights under the extreme environments of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and aboard ships in the oceans around the globe.
Dr. Andy von Flotow founded Hood Technology in Hood River, Oregon in 1992. In addition to the design and manufacture of launch systems, Hood Technology:
-Provides zip test services for pre-flight safety verification of experimental aircraft and components.
-Owns and maintains a silent wind tunnel for measuring UAV engine and prop noise in accordance with MILSTD1474.
-Develops, tests, and manufactures stabilized imaging systems for a variety of UAVs
-Monitors blade vibrations in industrial turbines and jet engines, a diagnostic method for predicting possible future turbine failures.
