The Jalisco-based company expects 20% growth by the end of 2021 due to the high demand for UAS in Mexico, which are mainly used to carry out public security and civil protection missions.
Every year, Hydra Technologies manufactures 30 aircraft of different models that can be equipped with high-definition video cameras, still photography, hyperspectral cameras, thermal sensors, photogrammetric or greenhouse gas detection systems, depending on the mission for which they are required.
It is a supplier to the Mexican government and some foreign and state governments, and its client portfolio also includes public safety, homeland security and civil protection agencies, the company said. During its participation in the Mexico Aerospace Fair (Famex) 2021, held at the Felípe Ángeles International Airport, Hydra will exhibit the S54 HD aircraft, a UAS capable of transmitting high-definition digital video in real time, and will also present the new S50, a high-efficiency aircraft with up to 16 hours of autonomy, and the S55, a high-performance twin-engine aircraft with satellite control capacity and up to 22 hours of autonomy, designed jointly with the US company Trident Aerospace.
Hydra currently has a Mexican team of 180 employees specialising in engineering, robotics, aeronautical design, electronics, physics, optics, mechanical design and artificial intelligence, and expects to increase its workforce by 10% in the short term.
