A micro UAV (MAV) designed for short missions in urban terrain, Mikado is currently under development by EMT. Weighing only 0.5kg, Mikado is designed for missions of up to 20 minutes, at a range of 500 meters. It’s aerodynamic shape based on delta wings and triple fin vertical tail, and communications capabilities are optimized for operation in urban area. The MAV uses a fixed video camera mounted in ventral blister shaped pod located at the lower aft section of the fuselage.
