The aim of the MSc was to design a man portable tube launched Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The resulting UAV has a vertically staggered wing layout and a V-tail. The UAV has folding wings and tail to allow the deployment from a tube and is small in size to allow it to be man portable. Several design variants were experimented with to verify the staggered wing configuration. The outcome is that a small UAV suitable for tube launching is possible, although the UAV has yet to be launched from a tube
