Who are we?

We are Loughborough UAV, a student-run team at Loughborough University which competes in the IMechE Unmanned Air System (UAS) Challenge. Our mission is to design, develop, manufacture and test a fully autonomous Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV).


Within the design and manufacture of this UAV, there are many requirements and rules that we must adhere to. On top of these constraints, we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Our mission is to deliver a UAV which meets our customer's needs whilst also being applicable to wider markets. All the while, we ensure that our UAV reflect our core values: to be Reliable, Sustainable and Transparent.
