A micro UAV (MAV) designed for short missions in urban terrain, Mikado is currently under development. Weighing only 0.5kg, Mikado is designed for missions of up to 20 minutes, at a range of 500 meters. It's aerodynamic shape based on delta wings and triple fin vertical tail, and communications capabilities are optimized for operation in urban area. The MAV uses a fixed video camera mounted in ventral blister shaped pod located at the lower aft section of the fuselage. Mikado is launched by hand and lands at a pre-designated point by entering a deep stall.
