  1. MAV Programme at CASDE Hemendra Arya Department of Aerospace Engineering Indian Institute of Technology Bombay arya@aero.iitb.ac.in

  2. MAV Programme at CASDE • Goal : • Aircraft maximum dimension 60 cm • Waypoint based navigation • Videography role • Endurance of 20 mins • Operation range < 10 km • Easy handling

  3. MAV Programme at CASDE • Approach : • Prove autonomous mission on aircraft < 2 m (Kadet) • Design aircraft < 0.6 m (max size) • Optimise avionics for a 0.6 m size aircraft • Test new aircraft and system • Perform autonomous mission

  4. 2001 2000 Instrumented. 2.5 kg, 1.6 m. Videography. 0.9 kg, 0.6 m. 2002 Solar. 0.13 kg, 0.25 m. Past studies

  5. Propeller test facility 50 gm force. MAV Challenges / Preparations2 kg, 0.6 m Autonomous Video-platform • Low Reynolds number flows • Wind tunnel balance • Miniaturisation using COTS • Construction methods • Propulsion system (60% weight) • Autonomous missions  HILS

  6. Overflying Mumbai Autonomous Flight : 4 Way Points 68332 @16 MHz RAM 1 MB, FLASH 256 kB 8 x 12 bit ADC @ 100 kHz 15 PWM / 25 DIO 30 gm; 50 x 75 x 12 mm 4 RC servo actuators Aileron, elevator, rudder, throttle H/W InLoop Simulator for MAV • Flight Dynamics & Sensor models • On-board Computer ? • R/C servos • Way Point Navigation • ADDR • ADDR + GPS • Out of window display Problem opened up for C&G specialists INS-GPS Module, M Tech thesis in EE

  7. Future work User interface for the HILS GPS simulator : interfacing with onboard computer Kadet data – Aero, inertia and engine data Identify sensors for autonomous mission Test Onboard computer and actuators for autonomous mission Fly autonomous mission using Kadet Design of 0.6 m size aircraft / use Sarika
