P11231: UAV Image Integration & Performance


Project Summary Project Information


The purpose of this senior design project is to integrate, implement and test the products of previous projects in the RIT UAV family. The centerpiece to this project is the largely untested 'Airframe C' built during P10232, which requires further flight testing to ensure that it will meet current performance requirements. The scope of the current project also includes finishing and implementing an existing but incomplete control and instrumentation package, collecting flight data and installing imaging systems into the already existent Airframe C.
