RNC Avionics strongly invests in Research and Development as a mechanism to bring new and potentially market disruptive products, as well as to reinforce the company’s intellectual property.

We adopt the open innovation paradigm and work closely with an extensive network of recognised leading experts, including universities, research laboratories and international study groups. Over the past years, we invested more than £1 million in R&D activities.  Our expertise and competences were recognised in several grants awarded by UK and European bodies.


The Evolved Sky Patriot Phase 1 (ePatriot1) Project aims to assess the technological and economic feasibility of the introduction of novel advanced features for the Detection, Tracking and Classification of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in RNCA's existing Sky Patriot solution. ePatriot's innovations will focus on next generation ultra-high definition cameras and improved video analytics algorithms to deliver unprecedented levels of performance for continuous detection and tracking of UAVs based on optical systems; on a prototype for a camera array system able to deliver the full 360º coverage; and on advanced, robust and efficient UAV classification algorithms, based on machine learning using incremental concept learning. ePatriot is set to be a real game changer in the market, exhibiting unprecedented performance levels for camera-based counter-UAV systems.
