The paper ‘Design, development and testing of a Hybrid Fixed-Flapping wing UAV’, with authors J. A. Moreno, C. Ruiz, A. Satué, J. A . Acosta and A. Ollero, has obtained the ‘Best paper award’ of the ICUAS 2022 Conference
‘Design, Development and Testing of a Hybrid Fixed Wing UAV’ by authors J.A. Moreno, C. Ruiz, A. Satué, J.A. Acosta, and A. Ollero has received the ‘Best Paper Award’ at the 2023 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems.
The paper presented a new prototype produced in the framework of the H2020 AERIAL-CORE project coordinated by Anibal Ollero, coming from the previous flapping wing prototypes developed within the frame of the ERC Advanced Grant GRIFFIN project of Anibal Ollero. The award was announced at the gala dinner of the ICUAS 2023 in Warsaw, Poland, last June 8th. Furthermore, Professor Ollero has been distinguished as Honorary Chair of the ICUAS 2024, to be held in Chania (Cyprus), next June 2024.
About ICUAS 2023
The 2023 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems has been dedicated to the recent developments, most critical capability gaps, and likely future direction for unmanned aircraft systems. ICUAS aims at bringing together different groups of qualified military and civilian representatives worldwide, organization representatives, funding agencies, industry and academia, to discuss the current state of UAS advances, and the roadmap to their full utilization in civilian and public domains. Special emphasis will be given to current and future research opportunities, and to ‘what comes next’ in terms of the essential technologies that need to be utilized to advance further UAS.
