Unmanned Solutions came into being at 2008 as a result of a spin-off from the Dynamic Systems Research Group (DSRG), at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. DSRG team has been working in aircraft control systems engineering for more than thirty years, and, more specifically, in Unmmaned Aerial Systems since 2004.
The diagram below shows the main milestones achieved by Unmanned Solutions and its founders:
In 2010, USol y UATec showcase their products in international airshows and fairs such as UNVEX'10 in Madrid and AVEX in Egypt resulting in the first sales of class K2B vehicles, the fourth generation platform developped by Unmanned Solutions.
In 2009, Boeing Research & Techonology Europe selects K2A class vehicles as one of the UAV platforms used in the Atlantida project (Application of Leading Technologies to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Research and Development in ATM).
In 2008, Unmanned Solutions spins off from the UPM and a strategic alliance is signed with Prointec, thus the two group companies are established:
- Unmanned Solutions, responsible of design, research and manufacturing.
- Unmanned Aircraft Technologies, to provide services to end users.
In 2004, GISD researchers participate in Project SISCANT, financed by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce, to develop and experiment fault tolerant control systems for UAS. The first UAV platform, K1 is designed and built to experiment in flight these control systems.
First developments in the field of AFC's started in 1987.

Evolution of our platforms
Unmanned Solutions has developped four generations of UAS. Our current model K2B, now available for purchase, is our most advanced design, built upon lessons learnead while testing our previous models:
K1 - Scaled up aeromodel
An expermental UAV with limited payload capacity
Our first UAV is developped as part of the R&D project SYSCANT whose objective is to design fault tolerant autopilot systems. K1 is used to experiment in flight the control laws being implemented in these autopilots. As a result its payload capacity is very limited.
K1-II - Redesign of K-1
The K1-II UAV platform is a complete redesign of the previous model. No longer an scaled up aeromodel, but a versatile commercial UAV platform.
While maintaning most of the aerodinamical engineering of the basic K1 platform, the fuselage has been lightened and strengthened with carbon fiber and the landing gear has been redesigned. These and other substantial enhancements multiply its performance over the previous K1 model turning it into a substantial player in the civil UAS market.
K2A - High performance UAV
The K2A class platform is a complete redesign of the aircarft from the ground up
K2A class vehicles look similar on the exterior to the previous K1 and K1-II models, but the similarities end there. After a full re-engineering of the vehicle it achieves high performance and reliability levels such as having one of the biggest useful load to MTOW ratios of the market
K2B - Modular UAV platform
Our current line is an evolution of the previous K2A focused on flexibility and modularity
K2B builds on our previous K2A line. Most operational aspects have been further optimized, enhancing the already remarkable performance of the previous generation, but the real effort has been devoted to increase their versatility. For example, they can be supplied in three different wing span configurations (4, 5 and 6 m) to match the requirements of a full range of different missions.
