Surveyor-I Mini UAV

Surveyor-I is a fully autonomous Mini Unmanned Fixed Wing aircraft. It is capable of carrying a 400 Gram payload and is ideally suited for surveying work. The payload is a day still camera. Most high quality cameras are under 400 Grams. The UAV is electrically power with a very low dB level. The aircraft is autonomous right from Takeoff to Landing. For ease of operation the aircraft is capable of hand launch and normal ground landing. Catapult or arrester net is not required. The UAV airframe is made of Elasto-Polymer foam and Carbon Fiber Composites.
