Synopsis

You join a comprehensive Webinar for designing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Though time does not permit teaching a complete graduate course, you will learn how multiple aerospace disciplines come together for building a UAV.


Airframe, propulsion, guidance, and control are synthesized in a computer simulation to conduct design iterations and performance evaluations. Your laptop is your design bureau, workshop, and test range. For follow-up, you will receive free access to the computer simulation used in this Webinar, and references of additional study material.



Key Topics
  • Conceptualizing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
  • Integrating subsystems—aerodynamics, propulsion, autopilot, guidance—using computer simulations
  • Conducting sensitivity studies of autopilot and waypoint guidance
  • Evaluating flight performance
  • Explaining simulation framework CADAC++ and providing free download instructions
