Our track record in innovative research and flight test ‘firsts’ has won us multiple awards and a prime position in the domain of unmanned systems development in the UK and Europe. Specialising in autonomy, unmanned systems and flight/vehicle management and control software, Blue Bear have a wide portfolio of products developed by their pioneering team and offer an end-to-end Managed Service for UAVs of different classes (17grams to 50tonnes) and types (fixed wing, rotary wing, morphing wing, lighter-than-air). We are unique in the UK in the breadth and depth of our hands-on engineering experience for different types of UAVs within a small team and our ability to flow down Regulatory Requirements/aspects to Engineering levels.
