In its 10th year, 2010 was a landmark year for the UF/USACE UAS Program. The team now has developed a very reliable, waterproof platform (Nova 2.1) which is totally autonomous including takeoff (hand tossed) and landing. The FAA requirement to fly within 1 nautical mile line of sight required land and water landings in the extensive Everglades and Lake Okeechobee. The Nova 2.1 performed 40+ individual flights without incident in 2010.
