System Integration and Operation of a Research Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-01)
The use of flight simulation tools to reduce the schedule, risk, and required amount of flight-testing for complex aerospace systems is a well-recognized benefit of these approaches. However, some special challenges arise ...
Flight Test Results of Autonomous Fixed-Wing Transition to and from Stationary Hover
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-03)
Linear systems can be used to adequately model and control an aircraft in either ideal steady-level flight or in ideal hovering flight. However, constructing a single unified system capable of adequately modeling or ...
Modelling and Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation for a Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-05)
Modeling and experimental identification results for a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) are presented. The numerical values of the aerodynamic derivatives are computed via the Digital DATCOM software using the geometric ...
Design, Development, and Testing of a Low Cost, Fully Autonomous Indoor Unmanned Aerial System
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-08)
This paper is concerned with the design, development, and autonomous flight testing of the GT Lama indoor Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). The GT Lama is a fully autonomous rotorcraft UAS capable of indoor area exploration. ...
A Process to Obtain Robustness Metrics for Adaptive Flight Controllers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-08)
This research effort seeks a process to draw parallels between the classical stability metrics of gain and phase margins for classical linear control systems with stability margins for adaptive controllers. The method ...
