The Razor: UVA’s 3D-printed U.A.V.

The Razor is a 3D-printed, hand-launchable, autonomous U.A.V. developed by Professor David Sheffler in partnership with the Mitre Corporation. The flying-wing aircraft’s design was developed through a rapid prototyping process and refined over the course of several iterations. The aircraft was built with freely available off-the-shelf parts, including an Android smartphone that acts as the central processor.
