Delft Dynamics B.V. (DD) is an innovative, high tech company founded in The Netherlands in February 2006 by four MSc‘s graduated from Aerospace Engineering in Delft. The company is specialized in developing and building robot helicopter systems (drones): small unmanned helicopters that can be used as stable, easy to control sensor-platforms. This is accomplished by combining computer and sensor technology in a smart way.

DD has more than 10 years of experience in the development and manufacturing of unmanned robot helicopters. DD has provided UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) engineering services to third parties (inspection of e.g. transmission towers and flare-tips), and has developed and manufactured several types of robot helicopters (RH2 ‘Stern’, RH3 ‘Swift’ and RH4 ‘Spyder’). DD has been involved in many national and international RD&T projects together with well-known knowledge institutes and universities, e.g.:

  • Project DroneCatcher: DroneCatcher is a drone that is armed with a netgun. With the use of multiple onboard sensors, the netgun can be locked on the target. Thanks to DroneCatcher’s track & trace capabilities, the drone will be caught by shooting a net. After the catch, DroneCatcher can bring the captured drone attached with a cable, to a harmless place. The project is finished and the developed DroneCatcher system is ready for production and delivery.
  • Project DRACO: In this defense technology project DD investigated how CBRN sensors can be safely deployed quickly and remotely using a multicopter together with TNO: ‘Demonstrating Remote Aerial CBRN Operations (DRACO)’.
  • Project CableCopter: In this project a tethered drone solution will be developed, which can be integrated in moving vehicles and ships for a continuous, quickly deployable, sensor platform in the air.
  • Project NEREUS: DD has been awarded a contract by the Royal Dutch Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard to qualify the RH3 ‘Swift’ unmanned helicopter for use on ships and for operations in a maritime environment. The project is called ‘NEREUS’ (Naval long Endurance Robothelicopter Equipped for Unmanned Surveillance) and will run for two years. Project partners are the Netherlands Aerospace Center (NLR) and Damen Naval Shipyards.
