Abstract


Abstract — In open field operations, such as in the isolated mountainous area, the need of small, compact, and portable surveillance system is inevitable. It is to give the team a surveillance capability while reducing carried-load significantly. This system is a portable mini unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with its mobile Ground Control Systems included. Within this paper, the general design processes are presented from determining DRO, initial sizing, aerodynamics analysis, structure, mechanism, backpack design until flight testing to validate the design. Some simple simulations by XFLR5 and complex simulation CFD are also conducted to predict the aerodynamics characteristic of UAV. Outdoor flight testing has been conducted and also still on progress for further results.
