Fully assembled avionics enclosure
The set of 6 electronic boards is complete now. All boards have been integrated into the avionics enclosure.
The avionics enclosure provides all required system management for a fail-safe and weather-proof connection between three onboard computers, the manual override (RF) systems, the actuators, sensors and batteries. Being the interface between the onboard computer and the rest of the aircraft, it reads data on temperatures, positions, loads, etc in systems like the landing gear, the tether attachment system and the power distribution system. The avionics also take the steering commands from the computer and distribute them to the servo’s. The vast majority of the custom developed electronics for demonstrator AP3 have been completed now.
