HEKA’s Battery Management System (BMS) is a durable, waterproof assembly engineered and designed to aviation and defense standards include DO-178 and DO-254. The advanced technology inside the BMS helps maximize the range of vehicles by optimally using the amount of energy stored. Our fully American-made, ITAR compliant BMS achieves greater than 99% efficiency. BMS Units can accommodate battery cell setups ranging from 1-4P and 4S-13S of any chemistry, shape, and size. Each BMS can support up to 60V and 150 Amps, and be connected in series or parallel, supporting thousands of Volts DC. HEKA’s BMS can support various data connections, including CANN, LIN, USB, NMEA, Ethernet, Serial, and Wi-Fi. BMS units feature cell balancing, short circuit protection, and overcharge protection. HEKA’s BMS offers customizable levels to suit different battery chemistries and constructions and provides the user with individual cell performance and status in each unit. 


HEKA’s Dead Reckoning Inertial Measurement Unit (DRIMU) is a 6-axis, waterproof (IP 67), 8 oz, compact design (1 in x 1 in x 1.5 in) and utilizes micro-electro-mechanical (MEMS) and micro-hemispherical resonating gyro (HRG) technology coupled with an advanced multi-source GNSS sensor. HEKA’s IMU is equipped with AI/ML error correction to allow for longer periods of accurate navigation in GPS-denied environments. The DRIMU combines the best of both IMU and INS solutions. HEKA’s DRIMU drift is less than 0.1 mm/hr in these GPS-denied environments. It offers 12 hours of operation on a single charge, 50 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and USB-C power and data ports.


In an era where digital twin engineering processes are revolutionizing industries, HEKALink is a solution for simulating aircraft as well as developing flight controls and ancillary aircraft systems. It’s a 6 Degree-of-Freedom (6 DOF) simulator that exports control software (command and control, GNC, autopilot) to run onboard the aircraft. It is used to create a complete digital twin of an aircraft, develop the flight control software, test that software in SIL, MIL, and HIL environments, and generate the executable aircraft software. With applicability and use in fixed wing, rotorcraft and hypersonics, this revolutionary product because flight controls is a plug-and-play solution that will save time and money in developing flight control systems for any type of aircraft. The software drives the hardware with all the resiliency and reliability of the FCS of the past.


HekOS is a safety-critical embedded real-time operating system (RTOS). Unlike Windows or Linux, RTOS ensures absolute timing and fault handling. All safety-critical applications must run on RTOS or have absolute determinism and time control. All HEKA-developed embedded applications and avionics run on HekOS. By providing HekOS free of charge, HEKA displaces industry players, that charge $100,000 to millions for low-volume, product-specific licensing.


HEKA’s Flight Controller and Autopilot is a Safet-Critical, Flight Controller used to command the and control the aircraft. It processes sensor inputs including airspeed, GPS, Inertial, and command inputs from a pilot or Mission Profile. The HEKA Controller will then calculate and send commands to the control surfaces and propulsion systems to fly the aircraft. HEKA’s Controller is DO-178 and DO-254 Certifiable, RC-319 Certifiable, and designed for rotorcraft, hypersonics, and fixed wing applications. When tightly coupled with HEKALINK, aircraft and get to production faster.


HEKA has accumulated antenna and radio technology and IP assets under the project name Lamprey.  Lamprey has been provided as a solution for challenges facing various Department of Defense, including USSOCOM, the NSA, and the US Army.   Lamprey includes HEKA’s software-defined radio technology and metamaterial antenna technology. Antenna and radio system design and development are core competencies at HEKA.


HEKA’s Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) utilize other HEKA Technologies including the DRIMU, HEKOS, and the HEKA Flight Controller and Autopilot. The fuselage is lightweight carbon fiber, and the system itself is waterproof (IP 65). It can be used in safety-critical real-time operations. HEKA UASs are turnkey products. No tuning or assembly is required. They are affordable, customizable, adaptable, and capable of navigation in GPS-denied environments. Each are fitted with a rail system to accommodate various payloads with a Modular Open Systems Architecture in mind MOSA. All HEKA electronics are DO-178 and DO-254 Certifiable, Making HEKA SUAS solutions one of the only safety-certifiable on the Planet.


HEKA designed, developed, and delivered a portable, self-contained device that measures in real-time the concentrations of fuel to identify its contents at an accuracy and precision comparable to the use of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). HEKA Spectrometer uniquely integrates with an advanced AI/ML to identify functional groups in a sample for substances present in concentrations of at least 0.1% by volume. These spectrometers are highly portable and ruggedized with an impressive IP 56 rating, making them ideal for use in the field. The devices have a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, an ergonometric design for easy carrying, and multiple LED indicators to specify battery life, device state, and potential errors. Additional features include a built-in display touchscreen allowing the user to view the results in real-time, a USB port for transferring data, large onboard data storage, and a powerful cloud-based application with an intuitive online portal.


HEKA’s first patent award was for its Gimbaled Fan Technology, or Dual Axis Tilt-Rotor technology. HEKA was the first to design, develop, test, and patent dual-axis tilt-rotor for aircraft. Today’s modern tilt aircraft, including eVTOL air taxis and military aircraft like the V-22 Osprey, use single-axis tilt propulsion. HEKA’s dual-axis tilt technology is the natural evolution for advanced maneuverability and stability, and it is beneficial for eVTOL in urban environments. This technology is useful for unmanned aerial vehicles and can be retrofitted for submersibles as well.


HEKA HALO is a UAV system originally designed by HEKA to improve high-altitude weather predictions. At 60,000 feet, the HALO can collect data such as wind speed, humidity, temperature, and pressure. Utilizing the HALO system, Space Coast aeronautics programs can better identify the ideal launch window to minimize risk and ensure safety for everyone involved. This project has redundancy in control and sensor suites, including secondary geo-positioning, geo-positioning estimation for GPS denied environments, attitude, engine prognostics and monitoring, and sea state information (wave/swell size and direction).
