Customer Requirements (Needs)

Customer Requirement # Importance (1-3-9 scale) Description Comments
CR1 9 Aircraft can send 360 degree lower hemisphere video to a base station during flight
CR2 9 Video received from aircraft during flight shall be streamed live to a virtual reality headset.
CR3 3 The headset views the 360 degree footage with a perspective that changes based on the wearers head rotation.
CR4 3 The 360 degree footage will also be recorded to be able to rewatch and replay later.
CR5 9 Must be able to land without breaking
CR6 3 Flown by pilots hands using a controller
CR7 9 The video has high quality and smooth framerate to avoid pilot feeling sick.
CR8 1 Simple user interface
CR9 3 User can fly in 1 direction and look in another
CR10 9 Safe to operate
CR11 9 Comply with FAA and FCC regulations
CR12 9 Basic drone flying capabilities.
