SAE INTERNATIONAL AERO DESIGN - 2019

The SAE Aero Design competition is intended to provide undergraduate and graduate engineering students with a real-life engineering challenge. The competition has been designed to provide exposure to the kinds of situations that engineers face in their real-life work environment. First and foremost a design competition, students will find themselves performing trade studies and making compromises to arrive at a design solution that will optimally meet the mission requirements while still conforming to the configuration limitations.

Team IARE ASTRA is participating in this competition at TEXAS, USA during 8th March 2019 to 11th March 2019 to achieve an international aeromodelling recognition.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                View more

Life is full of challenges and opportunities, but only for those who actually struggle to grab the opportunities and overcome the challenges. SAE EAST International is one where the students have got a chance to showcase their talents and skills. Hard work and dedication are the only hymn in the journey to success. Without being passionate and the willingness to work hard, no one can achieve success. Competition is necessary in every field. Competition is the one which make us improve or grow faster. By comparing our ability with other we can easily find our level.

The competition was categorised into three classes, the regular, micro and the advanced class unmanned aircraft vehicles(UAVs). The journey begun with the concept of innovations to build UAVs of advanced class for the mars mission. The team was formed in the month of October, 2018 with students of different thought process. With an effort of individual work, the team work went on for making the design report, model fabrication and testing and finally the technical presentation in a sequence with the best outcomes and guidelines. The team’s set up was very professional, the take-off was, even the team faced The aircraft headed down range to the target. It turned around, flew back to The Base and performed an awestruck landing. And that was it! A successful, very short modified mars mission.

Team IARE ASTRA developed a Blended Body aircraft that generates high lift to the aircraft and a bi-wing that was added an advantage in payload carriage and dropping. The twin tail with a dorsal fin was used that increased the directional stability for the aircraft. On the whole the aircraft showed high stability during flight and completed its mission in payload carriage and dropping at the desired target.

Various teams out of 85 teams representing the Team IARE have participated in advanced category with awestruck innovations with the different design for the competition.
The Golden Words by SAE Delegates:

Team #236 had an awesome first flight. Everyone at Fort Worth Thunderbird RC group is so proud of the team. Stay with it. As a failure brings out great success”
                                                                              -Mike Schroeder
“Congratulations, Awesome aircraft, very original. Well done”
                                                    -Tom Blakeny, Event Director, SAE Aero Design East 2019
“Awesome airplane I loved the way it flew and you guys are amazing engineers. I look forward to fly with you guys next year.”
                                                 -Grant, Flyer

These words made the team to stand out  with glee, thereby succeed in their thought process.

Behind every successful thing stands people with encouraging thoughts and minds the
Faculty advisors from IARE the Head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering, Dr.Dgovardhan, Mr. GSD.Madhav and Ms. Y Shwetha was an asset to the entire team. Twelve students in total from IVyear Sai Vinay, Aishwarya, Naveen, Sushma, Dedeepya, Arathi, Pradyumna Reddy, Rachel, Durgesh, Charan and a III year student  Sravan Kumar have created a wonderful platform for themselves .A ton full of happiness was personified among all the students who have participated with the amazing platform that was organized by the SAE EAST INTERNATIONAL 2019.
