Hybrid-Airplane Technologies GmbH - Dr. Csaba Singer

Most Innovative UAV Technology Business Leader 2019

Dr.-Ing. Csaba Singer (40) is the CEO, CTO and majority shareholder of the Hybrid-Airplane Technologies GmbH. He is an alumni of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering and Geodesy at the University of Stuttgart and graduated with a Ph.D. from the Institute for Solar Research of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). He is specialized in ultra-lightweight construction, computer technology, and renewable energies and demonstrates fundamental knowledge and experience in project and human resource management.

Unlike the common flight concepts (multicopters, airplanes, and mixed concepts), which involve purely dynamical uplift, our h-aero┬«  additionally makes use of the static uplift generated from an elliptic helium cell. Therefore h-aero┬«  is as energy efficient as a Zeppelin or a balloon while remaining as agile as multicopters or airplanes. The VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) capability eliminates the need for a runway infrastructure. The flight system is able to achieve higher cruising speeds than helicopters. By using solar energy as a regenerative energy source, the autonomous 24h non-stop flight will already be accessible in 2019.
