Antenna and Gimbal Subteam Member
The Engineering Department is where the magic happens. With a multidisciplinary team of Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Engineers, we develop a fully-functional autonomous plane from scratch to take part in the annual AUVSI-SUAS competition in Maryland.
Subteams are specialized teams that produce particular subsystems defined by the project’s need. In addition to contributing towards the overall product, subteams serve as an opportunity for UCR-UAS members to engage in both leadership and technical development roles.
