Adamworks LLC (Centennial, Colo.), is planning the first flight of its new electric-powered Mod.uav modular unmanned air system by the end of October. The company was established by former staff of defunct Adam Aircraft, the assets of which were purchased by Russian firm AAI Acquisitions Inc. Adamworks unveiled the demonstrator in early August at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI) trade show in Washington, D.C. Adamworks chief structures engineer Kasey Baker says the program is funded by the company. The all-composite Mod.uav is being developed as a family of scalable air vehicles, with wingspans ranging from 1.52m to 3.7m  (5 ft to 12 ft). The demonstrator establishes the 1.52m/5 ft configuration and basic fuselage and wing root structures. Larger versions will use clip-in composite wing panel sections and varying length empennage structures.
