Carbonix founder and CLA member Dario Valenza has very kindly offered to host the club at the Caronix premises in Artarmon for a social evening on Wednesday the 25th of July. There, he will show us their composite processes and drone integration works.
Carbonix produces complete drone solutions for commercial, industrial and military applications. Founded in 2011 as CarbonicBoats, the business started out designing and producing racing yachts and components in advanced composite materials. With success in international competition came opportunities to apply this know-how to other fields, including automotive and aeronautical projects.
In 2014 Carbonix won a bid to supply UAV airframes to an overseas customer. Following successful delivery of that contract the business increasingly specialised in drones.
Since then, Carbonix has added increasing capabilities in electronics integration, developing proprietary autopilot and avionics systems.
Today it offers two ranges of off-the-shelf long-endurance VTOL fixed wing drones and is constantly working on upgrades, improvements and next-generation models. Learn more about them here.
Their address is 59 Whiting St. Artarmon, and if that sounds familiar, it is because they moved into the old Simply Sports Cars digs. One of those interesting coincidences.
