MicroPilot Congratulates Cornell University and Will be a Repeat Sponsor of the Second AUVSI Student UAV Competition
October 30, 2003
Congratulations to Cornell University, winner of the First Annual Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Student Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Competition that took place on July 17-20 at Webster Field in Lexington Park Virginia.
Karl Shulze, Cornell Autonomous Vehicles Program stated:
"Our aircraft managed to outperform the competitors and we placed first after an exciting week of testing. We want to thank MicroPilot for your past and continued sponsorship to our group. We would not be able to succeed as we have without your help.”
The Second Annual AUVSI Student UAV Competition will take place June 24-27, 2004 at Webster Field in St. Inigoes, Maryland. Repeat sponsors of the competition are MicroPilot, Northrop Grumman, BAI and John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. MicroPilot will provide a free MP2x28g autopilot system to each competitive team. The system includes a flight control computer, a servo expansion board, a GPS receiver and antenna, a connector kit and the HORIZONmp ground control software.
To conclude, as more Universities sign up, the Second AUVSI Student UAV Competition is shaping up to be bigger and better than the first. Good luck to all the teams.
