Abstract: UMARS (Unmanned Modular Airborne Research System) is a fixed wing aircraft (span 5.0 m) with exceptional aerodynamic performance and stability, an MTOW of 25 kg, and a payload of 10 kg. With the electrical engine of 3.5 kW maximum power it can be operated slow (15 m/s) or fast (30 m/s) for one hour, with low levels of vibration. For longer endurance (up to 5h), a piston engine can be used. The UAV can operate from small, unprepared fields using bungee start, and can land on its skid. The first sensor package was developed for the observation of the atmospheric boundary layer, i.e. to measure three-dimensional wind, temperature and humidity in a temporal resolution of at least 10 Hz. The next steps will be to add an aerosol counter, and known sensors for NO2 and CO2.
