This paper aims to design, build, fabricate and test an aeroamphibious unmanned vehicle which can operate on air and water. Typically, an aeroamphibious unmanned vehicle is a vehicle which has the potential to operate in air, water as well as on the land and can adapt to both aerial, aquatic as well as terrestrial conditions. The vehicle is embedded with various sensors which gives live data to the ground station. Non availability of technology, dynamics of unmanned vehicle inside water, on the air and surface, complexity of electronics and communication are the main shortcomings which are highlighted in this paper. The undeveloped performance of the vehicle is mainly due to non-availability of technology and complexities of design. The only way to overcome these difficulties are to merge many existing technologies into one.
