Abstract:

THIS PROJECT IS GEARED TO PRODUCE A CONCEPTUAL REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM OPTIMIZED FOR FULL-SCALE AND SUB-SCALE ROTARY WING SERIAL TARGETS AND ROTARY WING REMOTELY PILOTED VEHICLES (RRPV). EMPHASIS IS CENTERED UPON THE PECULIAR STABILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR REMOTE CONTROL OF HELICOPTERS, WHICH BY THEIR INHERENTLY UNSTABLE FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS ARE NOT NECESSARILY FULLY NOR ADEQUATELY CONTROLLED BY CONVENTIONAL AIRCRAFT/AERIAL TARGET REMOTE CONTROL EQUIPMENT. THIS INVESTIGATION WILL INCLUDE THE DEFINITION OF FLIGHT OPERATION SCENARIOS, EVALUATION OF ALL CURRENTLY EMPLOYED CONTROL/TELEMETRY SYSTEMS, RESEARCH OF ALL APPLICABLE STATE-OF-THE-ART MOTION AND SPACIAL POSITION SENSORS WITH A GOAL OF DEFINING THE APPROPRIATE FLIGHT CONTROL CONCEPT APPLICABLE TO THE CURRENT AND FUTURE ROTARY WING REMOTE CONTROL REQUIREMENTS, AND THE DEFINITION OF A COMMON INTERFACE SCHEME. THE PROJECT HAS AN ULTIMATE GOAL OF HARDWARE DEVELOPMENT IN PHASE II TO DEMONSTRATE AN ADVANCED REMOTE CONTROL CAPABILITY SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR ROTARY WING APPLICATION WHICH WILL FULLY ENABLE THE MILITARY USER TO EXPLOIT THE TOTAL FLIGHT ENVELOPE OF HIS ROTARY WING SERIAL TARGETS AND RRPV'S.
