Intermeshing Tandem Configuration VTOL UAV System

This is a final year project done by a group of students from the School of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, Singapore Polytechnic (DARE Class of 2011). The project was awarded the Gold Display Award during SPINNOVEX 2011 for outstanding innovation.

The UAV features a Flettner rotorhead with full mechanical controls and is powered by a 0.9 cubic inch glow engine. This configuration negates the use of a tail rotor and gives the UAV added stability.

The project was displayed during the Republic of Singapore Airforce (RSAF) Open House 2011 and was featured in The New Paper on 28 May 2011. This was the first time that a polytechnic was invited to be part of the RSAF Open House.

A second version of the UAV is currently under development.
