UAV Factory has announced the release of its upgraded Unmanned Aircraft System Portable Pneumatic Catapult system. As before, the catapults are available in different sizes of 4 or 6 meters, but compared to the previous versions have significantly increased available launch energies – up to 11 kJ for the 4m and 16 kJ for the 6m version.

The new 4 meter catapult is now 60% more powerful than the previous version and the 6 meter catapult has gained additional 35% energy increase. The major energy increase became possible thanks to complete redesign of pneumatic system, which now permits a pneumatic pressure of up to 16 bars.
