Deployable Low Cost Outdoor Aerial Surveillance System

Ashish Tanwer, Muzahid Hussain, Parminder Reel

This paper presents the design of a dual controlled (manual as well as autopilot) Deployable Low Cost Outdoor Surveillance system. This model provides situational awareness by obtaining real-time information in outdoor applications. The aircraft is designed to have wingspan of less than 6 feet capable of carrying autopilot system and useful payload. This highly autonomous flight control system has high resolution camera and an onboard video transmitting device, which transmits high quality video with specified GPS points and altitudes. Sensors are able to detect man-sized objects. Innovative robust construction coupled with light weight and inexpensive hardware is used in the design of the airframe and avionics. These features allow the airplane to be operated even by unskilled users or via autopilot.
