NAROM Micro UAS : Unmanned Aircraft System for Educational Use (English)
Abstract [no]

This report presents the development of the NAROM UAS, an Unmanned Aircraft System for educational use by the Norwegian Centre of Space Related Education (NAROM). The NAROM UAS is a small, inexpensive and modular platform intended for technological courses. This UAS enables students to plan and carry out UAS operations while also flying their own experimental payloads. A Skywalker EPO airframe was successfully selected as the platform for the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), providing a flight endurance of about one hour and a tested payload capacity of unit{550}{gram}. The NAROM UAV also holds an ArduPilot Mega autopilot (APM). The APM proved reliable and sturdy once correctly set up. A meteorological payload was also developed for the NAROM UAV, based on a CanSat kit. This payload includes pressure, temperature, and humidity sensors in combination with a GPS receiver. Spatial weather data was transmitted to a Ground Control Station (GCS) and recorded in real-time. Consistent weather pattern data was collected in flight although the full potential of this platform could only be fully demonstrated by a scientific weather mapping study; however, this proved to be outside the scope of this master thesis.
