Launched in 2014 with the key objectives of developing professional engineers and inspiring the next generation, teams of undergraduates from all over the world take part in the annual UAS Challenge, which celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2024.

Starting each October, student teams undertake a full design and build cycle of an unmanned aerial system (UAS) with a maximum take off mass of 10kg to undertake specific mission objectives, culminating in a final fly-off event in June/July the following year. The system will be required to operate automatically, performing a series of tasks such as area search, navigating waypoints, accurately dropping the Aid Package and returning to base via a defined route.
