Robonic launchers are designed to meet the requirements (take-off speed, UAV weight and maximum acceleration) defined by the customer. The launcher performance is simulated before the design and the results are carefully reviewed with the customer.

Robonic system meets the requirements of high performance targets. This was verified in February 2001 at the DERA test range in the Hebrides, UK with the FRL (Flight Refuelling Ltd) Falconet using a Finnish Defence Forces pneumatic target launcher modified specifically for the test.

The main benefits of pneumatic 'rail launcher' over 'zero length launch' with rockets are; lower cost, minimising the hazard of rato's and the requirement for logistics. Launcher launches are also extremely dependable. EADS GmbH´s DO-DT55 has been succesfully launched off the Robonic launchers the company produced during 2004 and 2005.
