Vultran Tyger 1 may not be the first manned drone, but this model draws inspiration from advanced fighter jets, powered by a core Vultran TM108 turbine engine (for air multiplier propulsion) and four high output brushless electric AC induction motors driving 4 sets of twin stacked propeller blades. When combined with the low weight characteristics of carbon composites, epoxy and metal alloys, the Tyger 1 aims to break new ground in Vertical Landing and Takeoff (VTOL) standards.

“Its technology boasts everything from state of the art safety features, advancements in air multiplication technology (blade-less fan), unprecedented maneuverability and AI guidance systems to help reduce the pilot workload by up to 40% and increase response time by up to 80%. At the heart of the technology is Vultran’s onboard Artificial Intelligence Operating System (AIOS) also known as Alexia. Alexia is able to simultaneously monitor conditions from pilot vitals to outside hazards and threats. From aircraft systems regulation to emergency troubleshooting and intervention, all at instant speeds,” reports Yanko Design.
