Drone European regulation is changing.
Risky operations require satisfying demanding standards.
Hionos can help!

Certified Autopilot Solutions
For Drones
Easier & Faster
We bring years of expertise in safety critical avionics software to the world of drones.

We make drones safer to enable flying vehicles and risky operations like beyond visual line of sight or over populated areas.
Meet Pulsar
One of the most highly reliable autopilot system, compliant with international aeronautical standards.


Meeting the demanding DO-178C standard at its highest level of criticality (DAL A), it enables the use of drones in places where safety is critical.


Pulsar is adaptable to your drone. The software architecture used for Pulsar development makes Pulsar easily adaptable to both your electronic and your drone (multicopters, fixe wings, blimps…).

MAVLink compatible

Pulsar complies to MAVLink communication protocol standard. It means that Pulsar can be used with most existing Ground Control Stations (QGroundControl, MissionPlanner…).


Pulsar is able to diagnostic drone’s health, and to take the appropriate actions to guarantee a safe flight termination.

Meet Pulsar Factory
One of the most highly reliable autopilot system, compliant with international aeronautical standards.


Choose the features you want to adapt and do it by yourself, using the development langage you want (C, Ada, Simulink).


From code modification to flight tests in 5 minutes, without Hionos intervention, as many time as you want


Faster and less expensive certification, reuse the certification credits of Pulsar, we will help you do deal with your modifications.

They work with us

Thales Avionics

For different drone projects, Thales chose Pulsar Factory to customize the behavior of the flight controller.

The compatibility between our technology and Thales' hardware as been successfully validated and is currently in use on different projects.


For a project requiring DO-178C compliance, the CNES decided to evaluate Pulsar Factory and Supvareno.


Fleasy is developing an innovative flying vehicle enabling fast and long range operations.

They chose Pulsar Factory to adapt the flight behavior to their specific drone.


About Hionos

Our team is made of highly skilled and experienced engineers with a strong and successful experience in safety critical software development for both drones and avionics systems.

We rely on more than 25 years of DO-178C DAL A software development.
