TAMPA, FL, July 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- UAV Propulsion Tech has signed an agreement with Reventec Ltd (Salisbury, United Kingdom) to market their capacitive liquid level sensors, rotary position sensors, magneto resistive speed sensors and temperature sensors for the US unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market. Reventec Ltd is a UK-based mechanical and electronic design consultancy, specializing in the design and development of technologically advanced products within the motorsport, defense, aerospace and industrial sectors. UAV Propulsion Tech is a US company that markets German, Canadian, UK and Swedish UAV technology into the global UAV market. These solutions include consumer off the shelf (COTs) and custom: propulsion, autopilot, servo/actuator, electric turbofans, pneumatic launchers, gyro-stabilized gimbals and rescue/recovery parachute solutions. These products are proven solutions that are flying on several high-end global UAV platforms. UAV Propulsion Tech currently represents: Goebler-Hirthmotoren GmbH & Co. KG (2-stroke aircraft/UAV engines and starter/generators), Volz Servos GmbH & Co. KG (serov/actuators), MicroPilot (autopilots), Neva Aerospace (Electric Turbofans), Eli Airborne Solutions (launchers, parachute release mechanisms), DST Control (gyro-stabilized gimbals, thermal imagers) and Skygraphics (rescue/recovery parachute systems).
Reventec was established in 2013 by Neville Meech, an experienced and internationally recognized design engineer. Having previously led the Motorsport design activities for a UK sensor company, Meech brings a vast amount of experience working with some of the most recognized race teams and sports car manufacturers in the world, predominantly within Formula 1, ELMS/IMSA, WEC and IndyCar.
