Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have provided the military with the ability to strike targets and gather intel without risking the lives of human operators. This project will detail the design, analysis, and fabrication of a UAV. The objective is to design a UAV with the ability to extend its range and gain increased maneuverability in order to accurately strike a target from a greater distance away. The hybrid projectile must descent for at least 30 seconds after reaching apogee of a mile while weighing under 500 g and be able to stream live footage during launch. To meet these design objectives, an autonomous, Arduino-based electrical system was created that will automatically extend the projectile wings, upon reaching apogee, to slow down the descent. The position of the projectile is detected by an onboard Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) while the Arduino microcontroller uses that data to extend the wings through a pair of linear servos. The live footage will be gathered using a small, 3.7MP camera that will transmit data through a built-in 5.8GHz transmitter to a receiver on the ground.
