GIK Team Invictus Secures 2nd Position Among 115 Teams in The Proposal of AIAA DBF ‘21


Team Invictus from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology has been the sole representative of Pakistan in the AIAA DBF (Design/Build/Fly) Competition for the past 10 consecutive years. AIAA DBF is an international Remote Controlled(R/C) aircraft competition sponsored and organized by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Cessna Aircraft Company, and Raytheon Missile Systems. Every year, hundreds of engineering institutes send in their proposals, out of which this year only 115 proposals were accepted. Teams from all 5 continents take part, including many world-renowned engineering institutes, such as MIT, UC Berkeley, and Stanford. Each team is then required to design and manufacture an electric powered R/C aerial vehicle which fulfills the annually changing mission statement. A 60-page technical report is submitted by each team followed by the fly-offs that take place alternately in Kansas and Arizona, USA. This year’s COVID situation meant that the team faced the additional challenge of working remotely, and so digital collaboration tools were used for the first time. After achieving their best position in the competition last year, Invictus broke all expectations this year securing a record best 2nd position across the world, and 1st in Asia in the proposal phase. This year’s mission required the team to design an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) capable of carrying a remotely deployable sensor suite to carry out reconnaissance missions, as well as carry cargo-containers. The team set about designing a revolutionary plane, with advanced manufacturing techniques such as 3D-printed parts, and a pod and boom aircraft configuration. Utilizing the latest technology, and a well-organized team structure enabled the team to secure its highest proposal score of 85.9. The team is ecstatic and hopes to build on the ever-improving string of results. The team is looking forward to raising the country’s flag even higher and hopes to bring further good news to the aviation industry of Pakistan. The team would like to thank its sponsors, as well as GIKI for their everlasting support. Invictus GIKI aims to be the face of the radio-controlled aircraft industry in Pakistan and use its national presence and international experience to help promote this hobby in the country. ...
