Team Rakshak is an IIT Bombay student initiative to develop a fleet of robust Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to support
Search and Rescue Operations (SRO) in the event of disaster. These aircrafts can provide relief
measures in disaster stricken area (e.g.: Landslide,Flood,Earthquake), can be used for surveys and mapping of cities and
conservation of wildlife with slight modifications. Our design efficiently tackles the above problems
in a cost effective manner without comprising on human safety.
The AUVSI SUAS Competition is designed to foster interest in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS),
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 payload sensors, and execution of a specific set of tasks.
