Academic Year
We are a student-run team that designs, builds, tests, and flies our own UAV to compete each year in the Student UAS Competition hosted by the AUVSI Seafarer Chapter against over 70 teams from around the world. The team is multi-disciplinary consisting of four subteams. The airframe team designs, analyzes, and builds a reliable composite flight platform to house and transport a variety of avionics packages. The embedded team designs the payload and electronics. The software team programs the ability to complete mission tasks such as autonomously recognizing targets and dynamic path planning. The business team assists with raising funds, as well as forming and growing corporate, campus, and public relations.
