Abstract

Design and building of UAVs (for civil and military missions) is a field of actuation where the most important Universities, research Centers and Aeronautical designers have dedicated a lot of human effort. In recent years, a team of students and professors (at the Escuela Universitaria de Ingeniería Técnica Aeronáutica, EUITA) have been working on the design and building of an UAV for civil observation. This paper presents the highlights of this project, focussing on the role of rapid prototyping. Furthermore, this paper will present all the features and stages of this engineering project. Also, the current state of technology applied to the process will be presented together with a description of the main difficulties the project has undergone, as a global experience in engineering design and development.
