P10232: UAV Airframe C


Project Summary Project Information

The goal of the UAV Airframe C project is to provide an unmanned aerial platform used for an aerial imaging system. The UAV airframe must support the weight and interfaces for the designed imaging system. The aircraft must be operated remotely and be a viable alternative to current aerial imaging methods. This is a second generation airframe, expanding on the previously laid ground work established by the P09232 UAV B Senior Design Project.
