Project Description: 

The 2020-2021 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Design/Build/Fly (DBF) competition is designed to simulate unmanned air vehicle (UAV) operations. The specified task is to design, manufacture, and fly a remote-control aircraft that can tow a sensor for surveillance operations and transporting sensors inside of simulated shipping containers. The aircraft must complete three flight missions and complete one ground mission (GM). The flight missions will require that the aircraft takeoff in 100 ft with a maximum wingspan of 5 ft. The aircraft must also deploy, illuminate, fly, and retract a sensor that has a minimum diameter of 1 in. and minimum length to diameter ratio of 4:1.
