ULg UAV Project : Designing and Constructing an UAV for taking 3D Views of selected Targets

TEAM : R. Bifulco, E. Bizjak, V. Capizzi, M. Duquenne, N. Ernst, A. Guissart, J. Ligot, R. Rebia, N. Vanden Branden, G. Wautelet, L. Wéra

Duration : 2009 - Today

The aim of this series of Final Year Projects is to develop an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The mission of the aircraft is to carry two stereoscopic cameras for taking 3D pictures and video. In 2009-2010 the preliminary design work was undertaken jointly by four students and included the design, construction and testing of a 1/2 scale wind tunnel model. In 2010-2011 the project was continued by two students who finalized the design, improved the 1/2 scale wind tunnel model and built a full scale wind tunnel model of the fuselage and propulsion.
