Abstract [en]

One of the biggest problems of our time is the global warming. A direct result of this phenomena is the melting of ice of the glaciers on the north and the south pole. As this continues, the melted ice will contribute to an increase of the sea level, and may cause enormous natural disasters. To be able to prevent this, it’s important to study its affects. This reports contains a concept study of a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, a UAV, set on the coast of Antarctica by the Australian owned base Davis Station to document the changes and retracting of the glacier borderline. The purpose of the aircraft is to scout a pre-determined path whilst documenting the glaciers with photography from above.
