Previously a member of the propulsion team, I have now been promoted to project leader due to my ability to constantly expand my knowledge on various engineering disciplines. My desire to find better solutions for current affairs encouraged me to take on the lead role and strive for technological advancements that can benefit society.

My creative and innovative mindset, paired with my ability to work under pressure, allows me to efficiently manage my team of more than 40 engineers to succeed in developing a novel prototype. The team chemistry and dynamics aid my communication and time management skills allowing me to excel in leading us in our future endeavours.

Chief Engineer

The Chief Engineer role encompasses leading the design and manufacturing of our prototype drone. With a brilliant team of engineers, integration and cooperation between the sub-teams is very important, this is why we have chosen Alick to spearhead the effort to revolutionise the way that UAVs are designed.

Structures and Manufacturing

The team designs the main structure of the UAV, which includes the fuselage and arm system for the motors and propellors. Other areas of design includes the payload system, gimbal camera system, motor mounts, etc. The vast majority of work that the structures team does is based in CAD, specifically Fusion 360 and Solidworks. The team also works together to maintain a production perspective on the desgin by manufacturing the CAD models into physical prototypes.

Flight Dynamics

As the patent involves a variable incidence wing, the Flight Dynamics team are tasked with designing, manufacturing, and testing a wing structure. Specifically, they focus on the carrying capacity as well as the control of airflow around the fuselage of the aircraft.

Avionics

Flight control is fundamental for UAV's, and the Avionics team strive to ensure the drone is stable and well-controlled. The team's major priority is to specify and design the electronic systems related to our aircraft, providing a synchronous electrical structure. This involves selection of components, programming of microcontrollers, configuration of autopilot software, and PCB design.
