Canberra UAV have been declared the winners of the Outback Rescue Challenge for 2012. They managed to correctly locate poor lost Outback Joe, however could not complete the lifesaving bottle drop due to technical issues.
This year only 4 of the 73 teams made it to the final competition, highlighting just how difficult this competition really is. Congratulations also go to OpenUAS, Forward Robotics and Compass UAV for competing.
Canberra UAV is just the second team in competition history to find Joe, a truly remarkable feat.
Special thanks to all our sponsors for enabling us to travel to Kingaroy and experience the excitement of the Outback Rescue Challenge for ourselves. The experience will definitely help Monash UAS to grow and provides invaluable experience for our members.
