Sutherland Shire Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SSUAV) was formed in 2011 with the goal to compete in the 2014 UAV Outback Challenge. After crashing out at the D3 stage the team are now determined to go one better in the 2016 UAV Challenge Medical Express. Held in rural Australia, the UAV Outback Challenge is a biennial competition attracting both local and international teams.
“The objective of the event is to demonstrate the utility of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for civilian applications. The competitors will be required to develop a UAV that could save lives by quickly and cost effectively delivering medical supplies to critically ill patients in the Australian Outback.”
SSUAV are presently building & testing Unmanned Aircraft capable of autonomously searching for, locating & virtically landing to retrieve a medical sample from “Outback Joe” then return safety home within 1 hour!
