Sky-Sailor version 1 overview
The Sky-Sailor project is very interdisciplinary because it needs knowledge in a lot of fields. In fact, to obtain a fully functionnal system, we need to integrate and optimize many technologies: efficiency, weight and flexibility of solar cells, power to weight ratio of batteries, miniaturization of MEMS and CMOS sensors, performance of single board computers, etc. All those part are strongly related to each other and the change of one of them has an impact on the other (weight, power consumption,...). The figure below represents the first design of Sky-Sailor v.1.
