Content

This course focuses on composite drone production.

Drones come in various forms and shapes. The purpose of flying requires smart constructions and lightweight materials, such as composites. The composite lab at the Danish drone center offers various composite manufacturing technologies and materials to build different types of drones. The range of processes spans from additive manufacturing with composite materials over to filament winding and vacuum infusion. Natural fibers, like flax, offer sustainable composites but also glass and carbon fibers could lead to flying solutions.

The aim of the course is to develop and manufacture your individual composite drone in each team. The teams will get guidance along the way and having the freedom to develop their ideas and manufacture their individual designs.
