Recent Developments in Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
The Hybrid Quadrotor
Below is a link to a white paper on a compelling new UAS concept being developed for the Piccolo Autopilot by Latitude Engineering which is being deployed on the Arcturus T-15 UAS. The Hybrid Quadrotor is a new approach to fixed wing vertical takeoff and landing. It's one of the most interesting and potentially game changing innovations in some time, mainly due to the level of simplicity and cost savings it offers.
