CargoDrones. Sabrewing Aircraft Company (SACO) is a manufacturer of unmanned heavy-lift commercial cargo air vehicles headquartered in Camarillo, California, USA.
The company creates innovative technologies at its Dragonworks Lab in Silicon Valley to develop a new era of advanced unmanned cargo aircraft.
Sabrewing’s Dragonworks facility is located at the Hayward, California airport with lab facilities in Mountain View, California.
Aircraft design, engineering, computer aided design (CAD), computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and preliminary 3D printed components are accomplished in their Mountain View laboratory.
While cargo drones are on the cusp of going mainstream, with big players like Boeing getting into the game, the model Rhaegal RG-1 presented by Sabrewing could be the first electric cargo drone with the sort of range normally reserved for large fixed-wing aircraft.
The Rhaegal is a new generation of regional cargo UAV that offers high-efficiency, all-weather operation with vertical landing and takeoff (VTOL) capabilities.
It carries a payload of up to 1,000 lbs / 454 kg over a distance of 1000 nm / 1850 km with a cruise speed of 180 knots / 330 kph.
The cargo bay is easily accessed through the nose and can carry standard cargo pallets or bulk cargo using a convertible roller floor.
Establishing the Rhaegal as an advanced, versatile and efficient air cargo solution.
Nose entry cargo bay is easily accessible from the ground and doesn’t require special loading equipment.
The turbo-electric powertrain is extremely fuel effecient and doesn’t require a charging station.
Automatic collapsible wings allow for easy ground transport and storage.
As a member of the USAF’s Agility Prime program, Sabrewing is on course to become a major player in the unmanned transportation market.
