The BLUE CAT Undergraduate Student Design Challenge

Grants and Contracts Details


Funding is requested to support the 2012-20132 Boundary Layer UAV for Experimental Characterization of Turbulence (BLUE CAT) design challenge. This project seeks to provide undergraduate students with hands-on experience applying analytical principles, problem solving ability and design skills towards designing, building and flying an unmanned aerial vehicle capable of meeting specific set of design requirements. The mission objective for 2012-2013 is to produce a low-cost, portable, autonomous platform capable of conducting scientific measurements of atmospheric turbulence capable of being incorporated into multi-UAV measurements. The challenge will culminate in a demonstration flight for Kentucky Institute of Aerospace Education high school students as part of their state-wide wing design competition.
