Who participates at the competition?
In SAE International there are East & West American competitions annually each draws 75 international teams for a three-day competition of Aerodynamic Skills.
In ISS Aero Modelling competition teams from various states of India compete with each other.
What Happens at the competition?
The first day of competition consist of the Technical Inspection & Presentation,
focused on costing and design report. The next two days are solely devoted
to the Flight events.
SAE ISS AeroDesign Challenge
SAEISS Aero Design features two classes of competition – Regular and Micro. Regular Class continues to be the class with the purpose to develop the fundamental understanding of flight and the goal is to lift as much payload as possible. Micro Class teams are required to make trades between two potentially conflicting requirements, carrying the highest payload fraction possible, while simultaneously pursuing the lowest empty weight possible. The purpose of the SAEISS Aero Design Challenge is to promote and develop Indian expertise and experience in unmanned systems technologies at the university and college levels.
The project promotes the application of the theoretical concepts in a practical environment while balancing budget and design requirements. The team is made up primarily of undergraduate students with a handful of graduate members.
What we do?
We design and build an Airplane to compete in the SAE Aero
Design Series. Our team Participates in :
How we compete?
The objective of the competition is for a fictitious firm to accept one team's
design for manufacturing; simulating the tasks involved in introducing a
new prototype to the consumer industrial market. The competitors have
to abide by the rule & regulations, also while maintaining a strict budget.
The SAE Aero Design competition is intended to provide undergraduate and graduate engineering students with the engineering challenge of designing and building an aircraft under given constraints. 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.
