Design Strategy


Parametric Study

Concept Design

Detail Design

Specified the aircraft requirement. The certification specification of the Special Condition Vertical Take-off and Landing Aircraft are taken into consideration in the design strategy of ETN200 as well as:​

  • Payload weight 200kg

  • Endurance range 45km

  • Vertical take-off and landing

  • Autonomous control system

  • Driven by electric power plant

  • Safety features during loading/unloading

  • Seamless integration with the current logistic operation

Perform a detailed design parametric study on the system architecture to fulfill the functional breakdown of the aircraft based on the special condition vertical take-off and landing certification specifications.

Develop a design concept based on the parametric study's outcome to deliver the specifications needed for the certification and boost its commercialization value.

Detail design with analytical analysis and simulation on the airframe and system. Generation of engineering drawing, engineering order, report, and procurements of parts and components.

Consultation with the Relevant Authority

Consult with the stakeholder of the aircraft certification such as CAAM, MCMC, JUPEM, and SIRIM to get their input and for further design progress.

Manufacturing, Laboratory Test, and Integration

Manufacture the part as required according to engineering order and engineering drawing. The system will be tested at the every stage of development to ensure its reliability. 

Controlled Environment Test

Perform laboratory tests on the airframe and system to determine and verify analytical analysis on the capability, functionality, and performance of the design.
