Place: Harbin, China

Event: As one of the series of Mars UAV prototypes developed by AMT laboratory, MarsBird-VI adopts electromagnetical pitch adjusting method to control the attitude of aircraft. At present, the prototype has been preliminarily developed and the joystick attitude tracking test has been carried out. The experimental results show that the rotor of MarsBird-VI can imitate the acts of joystick to adjust attitude, but there is still a certain delay in response. The AMT laboratory will further optimize the attitude control algorithm of MarsBird-VI to improve the accuracy of attitude control.

Place: Harbin, China

Event: Appointed by Mr. Yuan Xue, CTO of GDU Technology, Mr. Hairui Wang brought the S400 rotorcraft to carry out the hovering thrust experiment of the rotor in the simulated environment of Mars in Harbin Institute of Technology. The experimental results show that in the low pressure environment of 1350 Pa with the equivalent Martian atmospheric density, the thrust generated by the rotor of the S400 rotorcraft is greatly reduced. Experimental tests of the plain blade and the plateau blade were carried out respectively. In the experiment, it was found that the generated thrust of the plateau blade under the Martian pressure is slightly higher than that of the plain blade.
