Abstract

See full text

Embodiments of the present invention relate to an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and a method of use. The UAV may comprise a UAV platform designed around a sensor system. The UAV platform may adjust itself in order to stabilize the sensor system. The UAV platform may comprise front UAV wings, back UAV wings, and a payload chamber. The front UAV wings and back UAV wings may adjust themselves by rotating about a line approximately perpendicular to the UAV's flight line. The payload chamber may adjust itself by rotating about the UAV's flight line. The sensor system may be located in an optimal location on the UAV platform, for example, behind the nose as far back as the front UAV wings. The sensor system may comprise an infrared (IR) and a visible camera.
