Abstract

The YELLOWJACKET MK1A is a low-cost (under $10K per unit) modification to the Darkhive MK1 and is designed to support arctic sUAS operations for both the military and public safety communities, capable of sustained operations in -40 degree F temperatures and wind speeds up to 20mph sustained and 30mph gusts. Innovations in battery chemistry, component hardening, frame design, and low-feature terrain visual-inertial navigation for GPS-denied environments will all be required to meet user needs.
