 Civil uav application and economic effectiveness of potential configuration solutions(CAPECON)
Funded under 5th FWP (Fifth Framework Programme)
Research area:
1.1.3.-4. Key Action New Perspectives in Aeronautics

CAPECON aims to advance the utilisation of safe and low cost Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) in the civilian commercial sphere. CAPECON will survey in-depth applications of potential users, and will produce reliable safety and cost assessments. It will compare different aerodynamic configurations and define possible civil UAV configuration ready for engineering development. CAPECON is a research synthesis of critical technologies, configuration design, simulation and cost appraisal methods, aimed at the design and production of safe and commercially viable, civilian UAVs. The project will concentrate on configurations and technologies suited to High and Medium Altitude Long Endurance (HALE and MALE) missions and also to Rotary UAVs. Currently the commercial potential for the civilian use of UAVs is largely untapped; hence CAPECON will enable the EU to gain a leading role in this emerging technology.
