Flying high on success

Team ARCIS of Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering (DSCE) designed and built an unconventional Uninhabited Air Vehicle (UAV) and participated in a global level aero modelling competition ‘SAE Aero Design West 2015’, organised  by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and supported by Aerospace industries such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman.

Held at California, the event saw 75 teams from all over the world taking part and Team ARCIS came tenth worldwide.      They had designed and fabricated a twin-boom inverted U-tail Remote Controlled (RC) Uninhabited Air Vehicle (UAV) with a wing span of eight feet. The vice-captain of the team, Adit NK, a student of aeronautical engineering department, said, “The process of designing, building and flying such a UAV was extremely exciting. As a team, we were able to overcome the obstacles with ease.”

Team captain Siddharth Awasti, a student of electronics and communication engineering said, “It was a great experience flying an unconventional UAV in the global level competition and we have achieved a grand success.”

Faculty advisor Dr A Arokkiaswamy, the HOD of aeronautical engineering and Dr Girish VA, HOD of ECE gave full technical support and guidance throughout the project. Kushal Kulkarni, a civil engineering student and Saurav Agrawal, a computer science engineering student, said, “We have got very good exposure in the design and development of UAV on an international platform.”
