About us

Flow Design Team started VECTOR project as a group of enthusiasts at University of Split - FESB. After thorough research, our team members enrolled in undergraduate and graduate engineering programs soon started to develop and design the first concept.

Our mission and goal are to share our interest and passion with fellow students, teachers and community – to present the necessary hands-on engineering skills involved in building aerial robotic systems.

VECTOR series

Our first prototype, VECTOR VX-1, is manually controlled fixed-wing aircraft with wingspan of 1.1 m and flight autonomy up to 1 hour. Proof of concept lead us to full-scale model, VX-2, double the size of VX-1. Upgrade which VX-2 brings is autonomous flight up to 3 hours with average cruise speed of 60 km/h, enabled by advanced design evaluated trough CFD analysis. Encouraged by excellent results and flight performance, further improvements were made - the composite structure was optimised and quality of manufacturing was improved. We're not stoping there - future plans include development of advanced Unmanned Aerial Systems and VTOL-type of aircraft.

Competitions

Ericsson Innovation Awards is an open competition giving students from all around the world the opportunity to develop innovative ICT ideas in collaboration with Ericsson experts. The positive impact technological innovation can have on people, business and society is what has driven the people at Ericsson. In the EIA 2017 the challenge was to come up with technological innovations that will positively impact the future of food. We were one of the top 13 of 960 international teams.

The goal of the UAV Challenge is to demonstrate the utility of Unmanned Airborne Vehicles (UAVs) for civilian applications, particularly in those applications that will save the lives of people in the future. This is done by harnessing the ingenuity and passion of aero modellers, university students and high-school students around the world to develop novel and cost-effective solutions. The competition is being held annualy in Queensland, Australia since 2007.

UAV Challenge

AUVSI SUAS Competition is designed to foster interest in Unmanned Aerial Systems, stimulate interest in UAS technologies and careers, and to engage students in a challenging UAS mission. The competition requires students to design, integrate, report on, and demonstrate a UAS capable of autonomous flight and navigation, remote sensing via onboard sensors, and execution of a specific set of tasks. The competition is being held annually since 2002.
