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.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

Sensitivity Analysis

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.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

Wing/Stab Optimization

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.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

Stability Analysis

Predict static/dynamic stability performance of the UAV.  Study how it is affected by center of gravity location, stabilizer sizing, and other design parameters.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

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.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

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.

UAV / Drone design and simulation

Aerodynamic Analysis

Predict aerodynamic performance of a UAV design and how it is affected by design changes.  Study interaction between wings and stabilizers.
