IMPULLS Tests Aircraft Systems and Sensors (1 of 2)

Caption: Myriad sensors and systems provide modern aircraft with data for flight control. But a bird's eye perspective is also of great benefit when measuring pollutants, searching for missing persons and even in archaeological research. Postgraduate students at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen have now developed an unmanned aerial vehicle that can be deployed for many such tasks. It successfully completed its maiden flight yesterday. Pilot Christian Roessler is shown here with IMPULLS after the successful maiden flight.
