Carter Aviation Technologies, LLC is an aerospace research and development firm that has developed and demonstrated new and improved aviation concepts, including its Slowed-Rotor/Compound ("SR/C™") Technology. SR/C™ Technology couples the speed, range and efficiency of an airplane with the vertical takeoff and landing ("VTOL") capability of a helicopter and is scalable in size from very small unmanned aerial vehicles ("UAVs") to large transport aircraft the size of a Boeing 767 equivalent. Whether incorporated into a non-powered rotor (transient hover capable) or a powered rotor (continuous / sustained hover capable) configuration, SR/C Technology offers the same extraordinary benefits during cruise flight in terms of dramatically enhanced speed and range performance.
