This project explores the environmental issue of chronic oil-based water pollution in the Baltic Sea. The goal of this project was to consider deign options and propose solutions for a sustainable autonomous aerial-aquatic vehicle (AAV) that can survey the Baltic Sea and detect and map oil pollution. Literature reviews and interviews with experts were conducted to compile an applicable set of considerations and propose a concept for an AAV. This became part of into a concept fixed-wing design composed of carbon fiber composites featuring oil detection sensors, a suite of navigation sensors, a single dual-environment propeller, all powered by batteries.
