This thesis proposes a modification to an air to surface guided munition (ASGM) from bang-bang control scheme to continuous control scheme with a little cost. In this respect, time domain system identification analysis is applied to the control actuation system (CAS) of ASGM in order to obtain its mathematical model and controller is designed using pulse width modulation technique. With this modification, canards would be deflected as much as it is commanded to. Seeker signals are also post-processed to obtain the angle between the velocity vector and target line of sight vector. The seeker is modeled using an artificial neural network. Non-linear flight simulation model is built using MATLAB Simulink and obtained seeker and CAS models are integrated to the whole flight simulation model having 6 degrees of freedom. As a flight control unit, fuzzy logic controller is designed, which is a suitable choice if an inertial measurement sensor will not be mounted on the munition. Finally, simulation studies are carried out in order to compare the performance of the أASGMؤ and أimproved ASGMؤ and the superiority of the new design is demonstrated.

Flight Evaluation of a Reactionary Envelope Protection System for UAVs
Unnikrishnan, Suraj; Prasad, J. V. R.; Yavrucuk, İlkay (2011-01-01)
This paper presents the development and flight test evaluation of a reactionary envelope protection method suitable for limit protection in uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs). The method is based on finite-time horizon predictions of limit parameter response for detecting any impending limit boundary violations. Limit violations are prevented by treating limit boundaries as obstacles and by correcting nominal control/command inputs to track safe-response profiles of limit parameters near the limit boundarie...

Design, Modeling, and Control Allocation of a Heavy-Lift Aerial Vehicle Consisting of Large Fixed Rotors and Small Tiltrotors
Ozdogan, Gokhan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2022-02-01)
In this article, we propose an unconventional heavy-lift aerial vehicle (HLAV), present the design and its control allocation analysis, and prove the concept by the demonstration of the experimental test prototype in the outdoor environment. We aim for a mechanically robust and simple vehicle design that efficiently performs heavy lifting compared to other common aerial vehicles under certain width constraints, without using a complex swashplate mechanism. The HLAV performs the task of carrying the main loa...
