C400P Pneumatic Catapult
The compact C400P Pneumatic Catapult allows a quick and efficient launch of professional UAV systems. Its ease of transport, assembly and launch configuration permits the operation anywhere and at any time with a deployment time of less than 10 minutes.
In addition, its pneumatic propulsion system is able to launch drones with an MTOW up to 35kg. With a maximum launch speed of 29m/s, it is possible to adjust the pressure in the system to adapt it to the UAV size and weight for optimal catapult takeoff.

Pneumatic UAV Catapult
Configurable Launch Speed
Easy to Transport
Lightweight and compact
Easy to Assembly
Easy to Use
Manuals and support available
One of the main advantages of the P400C catapult system is its ease transport, assembly, maintenance and use. Its lightweight and compact design allows it to be carried by only two people. Thanks to its modular composition, foldable legs and rope length adjustment it can be assembled in a short period of time.
In addition, the detailed Embention maintenance and user manuals will provide the required knowledge to carry out the mounting, maintenance and system configuration in a few steps and always with the disponibility of our support team to give a helping hand.
UAV Catapult Launch
A wide range of aircraft layouts can be used with the C400P Pneumatic launcher, being possible to set up the system for any UAV weight and takeoff speed. The propulsion system is composed of two pressure vessels and an integrated compressor, managing the pressure so speed control is possible.
Furthermore, it is fully integrated with the Veronte Autopilot system, being able to activate the drone launch from the control station. Stand alone operation is also possible for use with third party systems, being possible to trigger the UAV take-off from a PC or a launch button.
Rugged aluminium used in main catapult parts
Available in the user manual for safe operation
Operation from remote control station and safety pin
The state of the art in safety. Our user manuals will provide easy and simple protocols to perform the UAV catapult launch operation in the safest way. Besides, C400P Catapult has been developed according to the highest security standards with smart safety features, as the safety pin.
Taking into account parameters such as the wind direction, the surface type and the distances to obstacles, a no trespassing area is defined during the operation. Operators will remain outside this safety area ensuring the safety in the UAV catapult takeoff operation.
Adapted for any vehicle, weight and speed
Wide Speed Range
Pressure control available from the control station
Great Launch Power
Up to 29m/s with the standard configuration
At Embention, flexibility and customization is one of our business foundations. In the same way that our Veronte Autopilot 1x is compatible with all kinds of UAV and autonomous vehicles, our C400P catapult can be tailored to custom UAV launch needs.
It is possible to customize the pneumatic pressure system or the rail length in the UAV catapult so the catapult launch is performed at different speeds. In the same way, the drone bay can be customized to fit UAV shape and engine position.
