Abstract [en]

This report presents a master’s thesis edition involving the Maribot Petrel project, which concerns the development of a long range aquatic UAV capable of vertical takeoff from water in order to hop between different locations and to perform measurements in archipelago conditions. A concept evaluation phase was performed where multiple aquatic UAV ideas were investigated. This phase led to the conclusion that a flying wing with nose-tilting engine was the best concept to further invest in. Further, two prototypes of different sizes were then constructed and tested with positive results. The concept proved to be a promising platform for further development of the project.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport sammanfattar ett examensarbete som utförts under projektet Maribot Petrel. Projektet omfattar utvecklingen av en obemannad, vatten anpassadoch långdistans drönare kapabel till vertikal start från vattnet med uppgiftatt hoppa mellan olika positioner och utföra mätningar i skärgårdsmiljö. Initialt utfördes en utvärdering av olika drönarkoncept som kunde användas. Detta resulterade i att idén om en flygande vinge med roterbar motor i nosen ansågs vara bäst lämpad att fortsatt investera i. Efter detta byggdes två prototyperi olika storlekar som sedan testades med positiva resultat. Detta koncept visade sig vara en lovande plattform för fortsatt utveckling av projektet.
