ABOUT US - The Company
UAV Engines Limited (UEL) is a company dedicated to the design, development and production of Wankel-type engines for the propulsion of small and medium sized Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs).
The technology is based upon the rotary engine Research and Development work carried out by Norton Motors Ltd during the years 1969 to 1992.
UEL purchased exclusive world-wide Rights to use this patented technology for application to the unmanned air vehicle market. Since 1992 UEL have continued to develop the technology to a fully productionised and highly reliable state.
The outstanding product range and capability of UEL to manufacture and maintain them to high quality standard makes UEL the world's leading contender for the supply of UAV propulsion systems.
UEL is situated near the village of Shenstone, which is 15 miles north of Birmingham and 4 miles south of Lichfield.
Please note that UEL do not supply engines for powering manned aircraft (or any other applications.)
All Wankel-type engines have unique advantages as power units for the propulsion of UAVs, These include very high power-to-weight ratio, low levels of vibration, high reliability and low maintenance requirements
UEL engines have an exceptionally high power to weight ratio due to their unique, patented, air-cooled rotor design. This feature also results in a more compact engine with a reduced mechanical friction and hence lower fuel consumption than competing products.
Design Engineering & Project Management
UEL engineers have over 30 years' experience of rotary engine design, and can create product variations to meet customer needs, from concept stage right through to production. UEL will assist in the vehicle/engine integration effort, including concept, design and ground/flight test. Our engineers have experience of about 25 different UAV installations. Comprehensive design analysis is carried out to ensure cost effectiveness, reliability and fitness for purpose. Configuration Control Management is operated rigorously.
All new designs are created using modern Computer Aided Design systems. Drawings can be exchanged with customers' CAD systems via E-mail
Strong project management is a key feature of our activities in order to ensure that programmes are completed on time and to cost
Although every effort is made to ensure that solid models created by UAV Engines Ltd. are accurate, please be aware that any SolidWorks Models provided to customers or suppliers are done so as initial visual & programming aids only and are not subject to UEL's usual checking procedure or issue control.
