QUT SRUAV Tracking Antenna
A tracking antenna I've developed at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for use with our Search & Rescue Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (SRUAV), which will be competing in the ARCAA UAV Outback Challenge. Some more calibration and fine tuning is still needed for more accurate pointing, but the results shown here speak for themselves. Antenna is a 2.4GHz parabolic grid reflector with 25dBi gain. The pan/tilt is from ServoCity. The aircraft is a 1/3 scale Piper Super Cub being flown by a Micropilot autopilot.
