AtlantikSolar - Swiss multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «ETH Zurich's Autonomous Systems Lab.».

The AtlantikSolar unmanned aerial vehicle is currently positioned by its developers as a research and experimental project designed to test the conversion of unmanned aerial vehicles to work on alternative energy sources, in particular, the energy of sunlight. Nevertheless, the device has a fairly wide functionality, in particular, the drone can be used to perform tasks related to aerial photography and aerial surveying, conducting environmental monitoring missions, patrolling and monitoring the terrain and objects located on it, etc.

Despite the fact that the unmanned aerial AtlantikSolar model means has a sufficiently large dimensions, in particular when the length of the fuselage 1 meter 80 centimeters, scale device wings is 5 meters drone structure has a small mass, which makes it possible to start the aircraft using human muscle power. At the same time, it is important to take into account the fact that unmanned aerial AtlantikSolar model unit has a very good aerodynamic shape, which, in turn, does not cause problems with the management of the device.

 The power part of the Swiss unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by one electric motor, working both from an existing battery and directly from solar panels located along the surface of the wings of the device;
