Introducing Typhon UDX: The UAV Design Explorer
Unlock the power of agile UAV development
Introducing Typhon UDX, the first integrated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV or drone) design, analysis, optimization and simulation software on the market.
Present-day UAV engineering tools are limited and discipline-specific, leading to a time and resource-intensive development workflow. Typhon unlocks the power of agile UAV development through the integration of advanced multidisciplinary design methods within an user-friendly software environment.
Licensing options are available for commercial use and academic institutions. Contact us for more information on how to obtain Typhon UDX.

Typhon serves as a highly interactive and visual learning environment for aerospace engineering topics
Predict how any performance parameter (cruise speed, range, endurance, payload capacity, aerodynamic efficiency, etc.) is affected as any design parameter (propeller, motor size, wing size, airfoil used, etc.) is changed.
Select the best size and shape for your wings and stabilizers given desired performance goals. Study the effect of various airfoils on the performance of the aircraft. Optimize control surface size and location for desired controllability.
Predict static/dynamic stability performance of the UAV. Study how it is affected by center of gravity location, stabilizer sizing, and other design parameters.
Propulsion System Selection
Select the best off-the-shelf motor/battery/propeller combination for your UAV, given desired performance goals. Gasoline or nitro engines can also be analyzed.
Mass Estimation Analysis
Obtain a first-order estimate of total weight of the UAV and center of gravity (COG) location, and how it is affected as any design parameter is changed. Study how to place components within the airframe to achieve desired COG location.
Predict aerodynamic performance of a UAV design and how it is affected by design changes. Study interaction between wings and stabilizers.
Control Code Development
Create custom stability and control code for the UAV, or interface third-party systems to run software-in-the-loop (SITL) or hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) simulations.
