Unique New MAV Wins First PrizeUnique New MAV Wins First Prize
Unique New MAV Wins First Prize

French researcher, Dr. Jean-Marc Moschetta, funded by the European Office of Aerospace Research and Development, in London, England and the French DoD has designed a rugged micro air vehlcle (MAV) that is attractive to the U.S. Air Force because of its high aerodynamic efficiency, even in adverse conditions. Moschetta's students who contributed to the design and fabrication of the early prototypes of the MAV include: Boris Bataillé, Loris Rion, Charles Plachot and all the MAV club from ISAE.
