Typhon UDX: The UAV Design Explorer™ is the first integrated Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV or drone) design, analysis, optimization, and simulation software on the market.

As new needs and opportunities emerge in the UAV market, we are seeing the appearance of increasingly varied and innovative UAV designs. In this fast-changing environment, it is essential for UAV developers to innovate in a fast and agile way.

Typhon UDX is the first integrated UAV design software that enables an agile UAV development workflow. The software combines multidisciplinary real-time analysis methods within a user-friendly interface designed to cut development time and costs, while allowing the engineer to create more optimized and reliable fixed-wing, multicopter or VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) designs.

  • Powerful multidisciplinary analysis: Typhon UDX focuses on real-time analysis of multiple disciplines, to allow the designer to explore many ideas quickly, and develop different aspects of the system simultaneously.
  • Flexible airframe design: Combine over 10 parametric component types to create arbitrary UAV designs raging from fixed-wing aircraft, to multicopters, to hybrid Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) systems such as tilt-body, tilt-rotor or tilt-wing designs.
  • Accelerated software development: Test and develop the actual flight control software and ground control station in conjunction with the simulation of a specific airframe.
  • Minimal learning curve: Great effort has been placed on making the software flexible yet intuitive and easy to use, minimizing the learning curve.
