Abstract

The development and final system architecture of the Missouri S&T AESS UAV Team UAV is described. The project follows the guidelines for the 2008 UAV Challenge – Outback Rescue which is an international aerospace competition held in Kingaroy, Australia. The design of the electrical subsystems and the overall architecture of the UAV is described. The selected systems are integrated into a standard hobby remote control aircraft and configured for autonomous flight and navigation and image acquisition.
