Mini UAV

The Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP) also have a hand-launchable UAV under development. This small-scale UAV has the advantage of being deployable from a small craft and is also recoverable via a net. This allows the system to be fully deployed and recovered sucessfully from ship.

The UAV operates on batteries, has a wingspan of 2.6 metres, weighs 2.1Kg, has an endurance of 30 minutes and has shown to be capable of a 1km range.
