Overview for Hermes

Hermes Tandem wing alternative to Mercury. It's not just splitting the wing but also integrating both wings in the structure with a different swept back and dihedral angles to stabilize the UAV longitudinally and laterally. This allows more trimming for different payloads and avoids interference with the equipment. Short description of the UAV (complete project description below AND attached): Hermes summary: General design: an efficient VTOL tandem wing. 4+1 big props, minimal interference between components Detail:   Landing gear: tricycle type, nose LG + main LG attached to 2nd wing wingtips Waterproofness: rubber sealants in joints, waterproof materials and motors Modularity/Versatility: nose dome, wings, LG, VTP, motors’ arms, equipment, motors, props and (attached with spring buttons) easily taken apart. Handling: easy to transport and fit in reduced spaces Weight: CG aligned with motors, payload, IMU and parachute, < 25 kg, structure allowed up to 7 kg, carries around 1 extra required payload weight Fail safe (air): all kinds of redundancy, anti-collision, mission control planning and anti-catastrophic failure software readiness Safety provisions (ground): safety switch to arm/disarm drone, RGBW LED indicator, optional props protections Dimensions: each wing is 2 m long, divided in 2 parts, fuselage is 1.7 m long and 0.9 m high with VTP and LG Structure Airframe (fuselage, wings, tail): all secondary parts joined to main fuselage CFRP frame with screws and nuts able to be taken apart Equipment (batteries, motors, actuators): 4 hover motors and 1 cruise pusher required with their adapted propeller, ESC and the necessary batteries Avionics: correctly integrated and centered boxes given in the requirements Landing gear concept: three CFRP straight bars with wheels (steerable NLG) Payload Interior dimensions and securing cargo: cargo bay has required dimensions and a fairing around that completes the fuselage aerodynamic shape. It is secured by an anti-slip floor plus elastic bands. It’s released by sliding 4 spring buttons below Frame sheet Base data: 4 to 6 kg of payload at 30 m/s with a medium CL Drag: low drag increases range (or payload weight) Stability: stabilizing wings shape and position, NP at 15% behind the CG gives enough stability Complete description:Hermes brief.pdf (30 pages)
