Mechanical Engineering


As the applications for unmanned vehicles expand, the need for extended range and greater payload capacity becomes crucial, especially for important tasks like donor delivery and remote monitoring. Identifying a market need, Geoscout embarked on creating a drone that outperforms traditional models in terms of range and carrying ability, thanks to its cutting-edge jet engine technology. This development is especially vital for transporting life-saving medical supplies to areas that are normally difficult to access.


The Geoscout team collaborated with Loft to design a high-quality, vertical takeoff, unmanned vehicle for the remote detection/sensing market. It bridges the gap between hobbyist and military-grade platforms, reimagining the traditional concept of a "multi-rotor” drone. One of Geoscout’s innovations is the utilization of energy-dense fossil fuels as an alternative to existing battery technology. This approach created the opportunity for a vehicle with unmatched flight duration and payload capacity, all within a compact and efficient design.


Drone systems’ unique capabilities allow them to serve important needs across industries. In Agriculture, they play a key role in soil analysis, drainage, and crop health monitoring. They support the development, monitoring, and maintenance of Infrastructure. For Transportation, drones enhance logistics for the delivery of goods and improve security with surveillance and rapid response. The Media industry uses drones for entertainment, special effects, and advertising. In Telecommunications, they aid in tower maintenance and signal broadcasting. Drone systems are crucial tools that increase efficiency and flexibility across all of these sectors.
