SCV Robotics and Automation Chapter
Speaker: Dr. Stephen Morris, President, MLB Co.
Time: Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley, Room 118, Moffett Field, Sunnyvale
RSVP: not required

The Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) market is in a rapid growth phase with the greatest demand for smaller UAV systems that give military users a low cost, persistent surveillance capability.? MLB has been producing small UAV systems for more than 10 years for commercial and military users and this talk will discuss mission performance and operational issues peculiar to small (<100 lb) unmanned aircraft and how this affects the overall system design.? Our latest research and development effort focuses on a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) configuration which eliminates the need for cumbersome launch and recovery infrastructure.? We will present examples of commercial and military applications of small UAVs as well as video from flight operations.
