Inspired by the vision of our previous generation of Aeronautics members, ASAT proudly presents the concept of an innovative Solar Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) design.

Phoenix will be powered by a photovoltaic panel placed on top of the wing and a Li-Ion Battery Pack fitted inside the wing along the span. Its primary objective will be to provide aerial support to the authorities by autonomously surveilling forest areas and detecting early wildfires using a camera, paired with a Deep Learning model. When a potential fire is identified, the images will be transmitted via a 4G connection to the ground control station for verification.

This project signifies the Aeronautics department’s advancement into UAV development, surpassing the limits of our current knowledge and venturing beyond the guidelines of a competition. For this reason, the project’s subsystems were required to expand into new design methods and gain knowledge in previously unexplored areas in order to exceed the challenges of designing an aircraft with a 4.5-meter wingspan, a weight of 14 kilograms, and the aforementioned capabilities.
