Design of small hand-launched solar-powered UAVs: From concept study to a multi-day world endurance record flight.
J. Field Robotics, Volume 34, Issue 7, 2017, Pages 1352-1377.
We present the development process behind AtlantikSolar, a small 6.9 kg hand-launchable low-altitude solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that recently completed an 81-hour continuous flight and thereby established a new flight endurance world record for all aircraft below 50 kg mass. The goal of our work is to increase the usabili...More
