High Speed UAV Team Fall 2005


Topics
Topics

1. What is our project about - Brad

2. What we have been doing? - Travis

3. Where are we going? - Matt



High speed uav project outline
High Speed UAV Project Outline

1- Customer needs

2- Complete autonomous control of the aircraft

3- Build a UAV capable of 300+ mph flight speeds

4- Airframe constructed from composite materials

5- Innovative launch/ landing techniques


High speed uav project outline1

Customer needs- Design a small, relatively light UAV

Maximum functionality for its size

Could easily be carried into a location and setup for use

Low cost to manufacture and assemble

Autonomous control -Fly without manual controls

Use preprogrammed GPS way points for flight path

High Speed -

Beat current record of 268 mph

Target speed of 300 mph

Airframe –

Modify current airframe design

Light weight, composite

Launch landing techniques –

Optimize fuel efficiency and aircraft Safety

High Speed UAV Project Outline


What we ve been up to
What We’ve Been Up To

Fundraising

  • $3200 from existing ASUU funding last year

  • $3000 from ATK (used to purchase controller)

    Only $1100 away from controller system (already a $7000 discount has been applied)


Autonomous Control System

  • Picolo System

    • Built in sensors including a Simulation Program

    • Requires airframe input parameters


Modeling

  • Fluent Analysis

    • A current revision

    • of the HSUAV

    • solid model from

    • 2003 has been

    • completed


Current HSUAV Designs

  • Excalibur TUAV

  • Wingspan: 8 ft.

  • Length: 13 ft.

  • Weight: 992 lb.

  • Flight time: 4 hrs.

  • Max Speed: Mach 0.71

  • Shadow 200

  • Altitude: 15,000 ft.

  • Range: 32 nm

  • Endurance: 4 hrs.

  • Cruise Speed: 84 kts.

  • Maximum Speed: 150 kts.

  • Propulsion: 37 hp

  • Weight: 215 lbs.

  • Length: 9 ft.

  • Wingspan: 12.75 ft.
