Quantum Systems
Quantum-Systems develops and manufactures unmanned aerial systems for professional civil use. The transition aircraft Quantum VRT provides outstanding flight characteristics and a high payload capacity by combining the capabilities of a fixed-wing aircraft with a multicopter. After vertical take-off the pivoting rotors enable a seamless transition to aerodynamic - and thus energy-efficient - horizontal flight. Quantum VRT also lands vertically after once again pivoting its rotors.

The Quantum includes an automatic flight control system that stabilizes and controls its different flight modes, including vertical take-off, landing, hovering, and transitioning to and from horizontal flight mode.

In summary, Quantum-Systems has achieved a highly efficient, aerodynamic design for optimal horizontal flight without having to make compromises to facilitate conventional take-off and landing.

ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Quantum Systems is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from September 2015 to August 2017. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That doesn't mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
