Unmanned Air and Ground System Technology

Over the past six years, students have worked in conjunction with many individuals, companies and universities on industry-based projects. These areas have varied from concept designs of UAV, UCAV and UGVs to the reverse engineering of the U.S. Navy’s most classified weapon -- a Virginia Class Fast-Attack Nuclear Submarine.

The unmanned concept designs have varied over the years and ranged from tactical UGV’s to reconnaissance drones, to flying wing bombers, strike fighters, vertical take-off and landing UAV’s to this year’s fifth generation Unmanned Air Superiority Fighter (UASF) and a modular tactical, reconnaissance and crowd control UGV.

Both the UASF & UGV projects are true cross-curriculum projects that include three NRCC transfer engineering students on each team. These teams are also working with professors and graduate students from two major universities, two professional concept artists and engineers and a computational fluid dynamics company in Michigan.
