About The Project

Stanford AIR (Aerial Intelligence & Reconnaissance) is Stanford’s new AUVSI SUAS Competition Team. AUVSI SUAS stands for Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Student Unmanned Aerial Systems. This competition, spanning from October to June, requires us to design, integrate, report on, and demonstrate a UAS capable of autonomous flight and navigation, remote sensing via onboard payload sensors, and the execution of a specific set of tasks. Students have the freedom to decide all aspects of the aerial system and which competition points to go for. Due to the open-ended nature of the AUVSI SUAS Competition, it’s sure to engage people of all different backgrounds and interests, whether they be aerospace, mechanical, math, CS, etc. Regardless of your year, major, or level of experience, this competition has an interesting challenge for you and we’d love to have you on our team!

The 2019 AUVSI SUAS challenge is to use a drone to autonomously drop a ground vehicle, which will subsequently deliver a package. Our team is already revving up for a busy and exciting competition year. We’re incredibly close to finalizing our aircraft design, but we need more team
members to make a push for first place . View Stanford AIR-related media below and follow our progress via Twitter, and please reach out if you’re interested in joining a talented team of engineers!
