About Me:
I'm an engineer on the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope at Brookhaven National Laboratory. I specialize in optical and mechanical design.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Primarily automation and navigation (many ideas). Seems like a lot could be done developing or adapting a cheap on-board LIDAR system. I also have ideas for control after rotor failure on a quadcopter, self-charging, and a follow-me type functionality.

I would also like to try some fun things having a drone interact by non-verbal aural alerts. I've been inspired by "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" and more recently the drones from "Oblivion". My quadcopter design implements an accessory cage system, where boards/instruments/sensors can slip on and off in a modular way.

I've been working on an accessory-cage based quadcopter design to have a modular way of adding and removing components. The intent is to avoid the rubber-band and tape method of attaching components to the airframe. The accessory cage is comprised of four vertically-oriented carbon tubes and is meant to hold everything but the motors. There's a 3D-printed stage for each…
