C-Astral is an aerospace solutions provider based in Ajdovscina, Slovenia, the “hub” of advanced aerospace development and integration in this part of Central Europe.
C-Astral unmanned systems are much smaller than manned aircraft, easier to maintain and transport and therefore much more cost-effective, providing excellent productivity and fast return on investment. The industry leading BRAMOR UAS family is electrically powered and is able to achieve superior stability and endurance through its unique advanced Blended Wing Body airframe aerodynamics. It is capable of achieving the most precise surveying results in the small UAS category down to 0,6 cm, with a Ground Sampling Distance that starts at 0,7 cm.
The company is a global market leader with established reputation in the specialized, fixed wing small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) manufacturing and services field, with a specific focus on high productivity, endurance, surveying and remote sensing. C-Astral’s customer base is diversified between the commercial UAS operators, larger institutional networks, scientific users as well as government entities. Currently, C-Astral systems are flying with six sovereign entities on force protection, border protection, fire control and surveillance operations on four continents and more than 100 commercial and scientific operators globally. C-Astral established a multidisciplinary software and hardware laboratory for aerodynamics and systems integration work and a prototyping CAD/CAM workshop facility for composite materials manufacturing and modeling. The founders of C-Astral have been active in aerospace since 1999 and have been pioneering UAS integrated solutions ahead of the market curve. C-Astral systems are now flying over all continents, including extreme environments such as high altitude open-pit mines, deserts, mountains, Antarctica, over the Arctic and global agricultural lands.
