The goal of the RMAX wireless communications team is to establish an in flight communications link between the Yamaha RMAX helicopter and ground station to send and receive recorded flight data. Data including GPS coordinates for the RMAX will be distributed by the ground station, and used by other subsystems to track a specified on ground target. Once the target is located a UGV will be deployed for rendezvous as well as a UAV supply drop in simulation of common search and rescue scenarios. The following document outlines our teams collaborative design effort to establish communications.
