The Hummingbird is Reference Technologies (ReferenceTEK) newest Hybrid VTOL product providing flight duration in excess of 6 hours and a payload capacity in excess of 20 pounds. In addition, the aircraft has six hard points for client payloads with the ability to remotely deploy or retain the payloads depending on mission requirements. Up to 500 watts of 5, 12 and 48 VDC power are also available for client payloads.
iFuzion was contracted to design the aircraft from a napkin sketch. In addition we deisgned and engineered the composite tooling for the structure and engineered the propulsion system. This is an ongoing project incorporating new technologies as the industry matures.
