Drone Solutions for a Quieter Future

The majority of sound that UAVs make is generated by turbulence at the tips of the propellers. This noise is a major issue and restricts the use of UAVs worldwide.

To solve this problem, the team at Dotterel have developed lightweight propeller shrouds, lined with nano-fibre acoustic dampening materials which reduce turbulence and directs radiated noise skyward. This greatly reduces noise pollution as experienced from the ground and enhances direct sound recording ability from the UAV. Shrouding offers the additional benefit of protecting your UAV asset, surroundings and operators.
