Micro-UAAVs are slight unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAVs) that are broadening the prowess of avionics. Moreover, there is a huge disparity in the shape, size, and abilities of these aircrafts, despite the tremendous demand for the advancement and development of these UAAVs. Many mini-UAAVs can only fly at low cruising velocities, and thermal systems and electronic parts are just yards away from rocket fuel combustion at tens hundreds of degrees Kelvin. Countless uses, such as mutual operations with human-controlled aerial vehicles, intelligence gathering in vitriolic airfields, or offering as a target or decoy, necessitate faster take-off and landing velocities with aerial system that responds to the demand of high-performance micro-UAVs. This study aimed to model and simulate a low-cost and high-altitude unmanned autonomous aerial vehicle (UAAV) based on MATLAB/Simulink. Linear and rotational dynamics were designed, while wind disturbances were created to test the performance. The propellers were developed for consistent engine power generation. A simulation and testing of aerodynamics and transonic steady states were modeled and simulated to provide guidance using MATLAB/ Flight Gear simulator. An autopilot control system was computed to launch and stabilize the UAAV during deployment. The results show that the torque of 32000N.m, 2050m of altitude, 300m/s of airspeed, 33000km/h of wind disturbances were observed. To conclude, the developed UAAV was tested, deployed, and performed at 99.98% of success rate with high peak endurance compared to the current civilian drones. Further study is recommended for un-detectable UAAVs using XFLR5 and DATCOM software.
