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
slide8

Modeling

  • Fluent Analysis
