CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

The IMechE Unmanned Air System (UAS) Challenge (‘The Challenge’) will engage University Undergraduate and taught Postgraduate teams in the design, construction, development, and demonstration of an Autonomous UAS.  With a Maximum Take-off Mass (MTOM) of 10 kg, and operating within Visual Line of Sight (VLOS), the Unmanned Aircraft (UA) will be designed to undertake a representative humanitarian aid mission. The system will be required to operate automatically, performing a series of tasks such as area search, navigating waypoints, accurately dropping the Aid Package, and returning to base via a defined route.   The Challenge will be held annually over the duration of an academic year, with the competition commencing in October 2020, and the flight demonstration being held in June 2021. This period will be structured into design, development, and demonstration stages, with a business presentation, as well as the flying demonstration contributing to the scoring.
