1 Project Nostradamus A reviewed plan of action

2 Phase One Plan and Goals Phase one will be primarily the flight test phase with a slow introduction of sensors assuming that flight tests are completed safely. Flight tests will include weight carrying abilities, weight balance, and general flight performance. Although these things seem quite small, they are critical to the success of the project. Phase one will also include the search for contract opportunities. The town of Angel Fire has shown interest in using our services for local needs. We will pursue this opportunity during phase one.

3 Air Frame The new airframe plan is to use a modified scale version of a Lanciar. This airframe is readily available at a relatively low cost. The airframe is very stable and reliable and will not require much time to get ready to fly. Due to the ease of flight, training will not be needed. There is plenty of room for sensors but a larger scale can be used if the need arises. The aircraft will be purchased with an engine. Radio equipment and sensor package will be ordered separately.

6 Phase one sensor system The planned sensor package for phase one will be very simple. The reason for this decision is that airframe problems should be well ironed out before expensive sensor packages are added. The airframe will also be tested to evaluate how much weight it will carry safely. Weight will also have to be balanced, this will be accomplished by using dummy sensor packages. The phase one aircraft will carry a flight camera. An infrared camera will be added if flight tests are satisfactorily completed. This decision is based on both time and the fact that we dont want to waste dollars on wrecked cameras. The planned sensor package for phase one will be very simple.
