The Sensor Analysis and Intelligence Laboratory (SAIL) at Mississippi State University's (MSU's) Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) incorporated sensors with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Mounting plates were created to secure the sensors to the UAVs for data collection. This study’s purpose was to detail the process that went in to creating two different versions of the mount plates. One version of the mounting system was cut from G10 fiberglass sheets, and the other version was made from 3D printing with polylactic acid (PLA). Characteristics such as cost, time, and simplicity of the manufacturing methods are compared in this study. Plate performance characteristics such as compatibility, weight, and success/failure are also discussed. Detailing the advantages and limitations of either approach will aid future researchers’ decision-making process for their own studies. They can use this study as a foundational framework for deciding which mount would best fit with their system requirements.
