Unmanned Tech Student Research Programme
Are you currently a student/teacher looking to use a UAV as part of your project or as a hobby? At Unmanned Tech we encourage innovation and research and because of this we offer incentives for students to use our products by offering discounts for student research projects. Just let us know about your project and what products you want to use to get your discount today.
Open Source Platforms
Most of our autopilots and hardware are open source, this gives you access to all of the design files and source code so you can always make any changes you want to specifically suit your application or project. The other great thing about electronics + software being open source is that it allows you to help your learning and development as you can see all the intricate details of how things work. You can also use the open source designs as a basis for your very own project to avoid re-inventing the wheel. Some of our products are not entirely open source, so unfortunately you cannot gain access to the details, however you can still use these 'black box' solutions at a discount for your projects if you require them.
If you require a fully functional UAV for your research project we have a variety of proven products that can help you quickly get flying, saving you time. Our selection of kits contain everything you need to build your drone, we can also build the kits for you so they're ready to go with no need to fiddle around with tuning to find the optimum parameters. Products like Ardupilot Mega, which is a mature open source UAV autopilot that can be used to control all the different types of aircraft (Fixed wing, Traditional Helicopter and Multi-rotors). This autopilot is easy to use and customise for your own needs. We recommend using Ardupilot Mega as the basis for your UAV project as it is reliable and has countless flight hours on a handful of different aircraft, not to mention a great support community.
The specific discounts available vary depending on products and can change anytime depending on the market. After successful application you will be given access to our student UAV shop with all of the discounts applied.
The requirements to obtain the student discount are simple:
