Abstract:
The Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) of rotorcraft offers the potential to increase the effectivity and survivability of the combined tactical unit. Currently, commercially available Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capability are not specifically designed for fast forward flight and would slow down the entire tactical unit. This study presents the first results of the development of a technology-demonstrator with a maximum airspeed of at least 180 kt. The investigation of different VTOL-UAV concepts, the selection of a thrust-compound configuration and the first details of the predesign are described. Furthermore, the flight performance is analyzed with focus on maximum airspeed, power, endurance and range. The results show, that the proposed design of the VTOL-UAV is expected to fulfill the requirements.
