The core capabilities of New Eagle are well suited to the requirements of the military marketplace. Focused on providing the rapid development of control systems, typically for low or niche volume commercial applications, these skills relate well to the varied demands of many military products. While powertrains are at the core of the current business, the underlying model based design toolchain, functions equally well for other complex control systems – e.g., 2D position control, complex hydraulics.
Advanced Diesel Engine Controls
New Eagle have hardware and software to control the most advanced engines available. These can be utilized to operate advanced research and development engines or to replace an OEM controller on a COTS engine. This capability gives our customer the ability to utilize the base COTS engine with any required mechanical upgrades – for example to achieve a reliable higher power density. Our controller / base engine control strategy combined with the design toolchain allows our customer to develop any advanced control strategies required on top of the base diesel engine model.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
New Eagle has experience in developing control systems for powertrains (both IC and electrical) in a number of unmanned aerial platforms, including platforms from Raytheon and AeroMech. Control system development has utilized automotive grade controllers due to immediate availability, while requirements have been gathered to lay down the specifications for a dedicated controller for this market segment. This will be the next step in the process of evolution of a dedicated control system for lightweight UAVs.
Unmanned Surface Vessels
In addition to the basic powertrain control, New Eagle can provide the positional control system for both marine and land unmanned systems, having experience in both unmanned vehicles and in providing positional control for manned marine surface vehicles.
Rapid Development of Complex Control Systems
New Eagle has the ability to take existing military grade controllers and add model based design software onto these controllers to make them compatible with common rapid controls prototyping software (low level software access to the target controller is required).
