Surveillance Aircraft: Observer
A combined project by Cranfield Aerospace, DERA and TASUMA, the Observer is a recent development allowing single operator UAV ground control to now become a practical reality. Operated through touch sensitive map and image displays, the aircraft allows the operator head up control of the platform, close inspecion of areas of interest and a single touch is all that is required to initiate a search routine, close on a target, or closely observe a key point. Aerodynamically unstable in all axis, the development of the Gust Insensitive control system and avionics package allows for significantly inproved aerodynamic performance via reduced weight and drag.
