About AEROTHON 2022
Theme: Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) - Design, Build and Fly Contest
Indian government is on the mission to turn the country into a Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) / Drone hub by 2030 under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan by accelerating the pace of development of India’s Unmanned Aircraft / Drone industry. India’s UAS market could grow to INR 500 billion (US$6.8 billion) in the next five years.
Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) are used across many industries like defense, construction, infrastructure, mining, telecom, geospatial mapping, agriculture/farming, media & entertainment, law enforcement, oil and gas for surveillance, security, safety, disaster management, land survey, progress and condition monitoring through aerial photography and thermal imaging. More widespread consumer market applications will soon become realistic, keeping pace with progress in tech innovation and reduced costs. Some of these include drone-facilitated last mile delivery for the retail, healthcare and logistics sectors.
SAEINDIA Aerospace Forum is organizing AeroTHON 2022 competition for students with primary focus on developing design, build and piloting skills of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) to prepare them industry ready for the emerging market. As part of AeroTHON 2022, students undertake a full design and build cycle of an unmanned aerial vehicle meeting specific mission requirements, culminating in a final fly-off event.
The objective of this year’s competition is to design, build and fly a UAV to meet a specific mission requirement.
Program will be conducted in 2 phases: Phase 1- Design Round, and Phase 2 - Final Round including Flight Test.
