Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

The Pacific Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Project (PUAV) is an undergraduate research and design project the ultimate goal of which is to produce an aerial vehicle which can be controlled solely by an onboard computer. The project is divided into two primary areas: Airframe and Hardware. An airframe must be designed which can meet the following performance characteristics, speeds in excess of 40 mph, altitudes greater than 500 feet and flight times of more than 20 minutes. The second category, hardware design, includes the design of all necessary sensors to completely automate the airframe and conduct land surveys through an imaging sensor. Information such as physical location and images will be transmitted to a ground station.
