Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are critical to modern military operations. They are generally expensive and require several people to use and maintain. This report presents the development of a UAV that is inexpensive, one-man operable, and capable of short range surveillance. Based on requirements provided by the Air Force Research Laboratory, the team established a set of specifications to guide the design. The UAV is lightweight, durable, and small when disassembled. It is tele-operated, and displays image data from multiple cameras.
