Team Integration is tasked with making the aircraft actually lift off – and ideally even move where it’s supposed to go! That’s possible thanks to the indoor positioning system developed by team Navigation.

Team Integration deals with most technical aspects of the aircraft, including:

  • Flight control and stabilization
  • Processing of the position data
  • communication with the ground control station

For this, there are several tasks to manage, which mostly require knowledge in various areas of applied computer science and computer engineering:

  • Research about the  used autopilot software and modification of it
  • Implementation of a communication protocol for transmitting the position
  • Optimization of the mission flight through ideal positioning of the waypoints
