The Space City Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) team is an engineering team created to build and pilot student-made, radio controlled fixed wing planes in the international AIAA Design, Build, Fly competition. Formed in 2019, the team has taken great strides in the development of their projects over the past year
Each student’s drone is tasked with flying a mission completely autonomously. The mission objectives include taking off and landing, flying waypoints, avoiding obstacles, recognizing and classifying ground targets via onboard camera, and airdropping an unmanned ground vehicle to deliver a package.

Many of our members are engineering students who have extensive relevant hobbyist experience. We know that to compete at the highest level, we must utilize the latest technology to construct a robust and well-engineered design. We heavily rely on external sponsorship for resources to create an outstanding drone and succeed in the competition.
