Guidance of aircraft in periodic inspection tasks
Bruggemann, Troy S. & Ford, Jason J. (2011) Guidance of aircraft in periodic inspection tasks. In The Australian Control Conference (AUCC), 10-11 November 2011, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC.
This paper presents a guidance approach for aircraft in periodic inspection tasks. The periodic inspection task involves flying to a series of desired fixed points of inspection with specified attitude requirements so that requirements for downward looking sensors, such as cameras, are achieved. We present a solution using a precision guidance law and a bank turn dynamics model. High fidelity simulation studies illustrate the effectiveness of this approach under both ideal (nil-wind) and non-ideal (wind) conditions.
