Flight Operations General
Heavily involved in the construction of Monash UAS’s aircrafts, the Flight Operations team works closely with other sections to develop the physical construction, wiring and programming of the flight computers, in addition to the development of auxiliary systems such as on-board flight cameras and communication systems. Autonomous missions are written by the team and are simulated prior to flights.
During flight tests, the ground station team monitors all systems on the aircraft through telemetry, interpreting the information and relaying it to pilots. Afterwards, analysis of the flight logs is conducted to extract critical metrics and information in order to better guide future developments.
