Summary Note

In June 2009 the University of West Florida hosted the 4th US-European Workshop and Flight Competition for Micro Air Vehicles (iMAV). Teams from universities around the world attended, each competing with a micro air vehicle or MAV, demonstrating manueverability through and around obstacles. This collection of photographs were taken by Ron Besser of the indoor aviation robotics flying competition.

Of note is the team (white shirts) from the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Australia) who won first prize for their paper on the development of their micro air vehicle, MAVSTAR, and third place for its control and navigation abilities.

Note that this entry is part 2 of 2, and another entry in this database has the first 100 images.

Physical Description Note

The original CD contains digital photographs numbered DSC_0001 to DSC_0112, but 004 is not present. The Archives decided not to edit the collection so all 111 photographs are posted. Note that this entry is part two, covering photos 101-112, due to space limitations of the software. Photos 1-100 are in a separate entry in this same database. The photographs have been resized to fit storage requirements and the original larger files are available upon request.
