RE:Spot Landing Bouns
From: Shena Howell
To: UAE Innovation Challenge
Posted: Apr 10, 2012 11:13 AM
Subject: RE:Spot Landing Bouns
Message:
Just to clarify:

Although there will be two (2) spot landing zones marked on the field, teams will only have the option of using one (1) to get the bonus points. Teams must designate prior to take off which landing zone they are targeting.

Message:
Q: What is the diameter of the landing spot area?
A: Please see attached PDF.  The spot landing zone is square measuring 15m on each side.  There will be one on each side of the field so that pilots will be able to make approaches in either direction depending on the day's winds.

Presentation Scoring Reminder
From: Jeremy Alonso
To: UAE Innovation Challenge
Posted: Apr 04, 2012 8:05 PM
Subject: Presentation Scoring Reminder
Message:

Presentation

All teams will present a 15 to 20 minute presentation on the design, strategy, and challenges of their unmanned aerial vehicle followed by a 10-minute question and answer session.  Each student must present at least one slide.  A panel of judges including representatives from Northrop Grumman Engineering, Higher Colleges of Technologies, Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Foundation and Abu Dhabi
Autonomous Systems Investments (ADASI)
will score each presentation, and the average score will be awarded to the team. The presentation must be in a format compatible with MS Office (e.g., PowerPoint).  Backup copies on CD or flash drives brought on the day of the competition are encouraged for last minute changes.  Teams are encouraged to bring their aircraft to the presentation for demonstration purposes.

The presentation will be scored on a scale of 100 and will be broken down according to the following rubric:

Max Possible Pts

Criteria

10

Visuals (slides are illustrative and easy to read, points are clear)

10

Delivery (evidence of preparation; thoughts are clearly articulated)

5

Organization (overview, content, conclusion)

5

Time Limit (each team member contributes; team stays within time limit)

15

Design Methodology (explanation of the strategy taken to meet the mission)

15

Autopilot Explanation and Implementation (basic use; any code modifications)

15

Design Discussion and Documentation

15

Testing (methodologies and results of tests performed)

5

Project Management (requirements, schedule, budget, etc)

5

Questions (audience / panel questions addressed adequately)


Feel free to ask any questions on a section.

I'm excited to go back again and see everyone!

In preparation for this trip, teams are asked to do the following prior to the mentors' arrival:
1. Finish constructing competition aircraft
2. Create mission plan for school's flying site with carefully chosen waypoint altitudes and airspeeds
3. Fly the mission plan in X-Plane
4. Decide whether or not to test-fly their competition aircraft with the autopilot.  
5. Compile list of questions, if any

Subject: RE:Rules change: Teams not required to bring 2 aircraft to competition
Message:
Correction:

I incorrectly titled this thread to imply that we were changing the rules.  However, review of the original rules reveal that even though teams are highly encouraged to bring 2 aircraft to the competition, only 1 is required.
