2 May 2007 A man portable hybrid UAV/UGV system
Author Affiliations +
We developed and demonstrated a UAV package that works in conjunction with the PackBot UGV to allow medium range missions. Both the UAV and UGV are man portable, and the combined system can be used from unimproved airfields such as soccer pitches. The UAV is capable of up to 75lbs of payload, while weighing less than 30lbs. This document describes the initial proof of concept prototype, the associated ground and flight tests, and areas for further development.
