Abstract: This report presents a master’s thesis edition involving the Maribot Petrel project, which concerns the development of a long range aquatic UAV capable of vertical takeoff from water in order to hop between different locations and to perform measurements in archipelago conditions. A concept evaluation phase was performed where multiple aquatic UAV ideas were investigated. This phase led to the conclusion that a flying wing with nose-tilting engine was the best concept to further invest in. Further, two prototypes of different sizes were then constructed and tested with positive results. The concept proved to be a promising platform for further development of the project.
