Motivation of this study is to verify system safety analysis of HAVELSAN Peace Eagle Program developed hardware items for Ground Support Systems. A preliminary hazard analysis for each of the hardware developed items are performed and safety hazard analysis models are constructed with risk assessment of hazards based on their probability of occurrences for future operational and maintenance activities. An example for this kind of analysis the system safety fault tree analysis model of a Ground Support Segment Mission Simulator subsystem Power Distribution Adapter Cabinet design with hazardous risk assessments criteria according to the military standard specifications. Same analysis approach then modeled with Petri Nets that has extensions from fault tree analysis approach and enables the modeler to represent the probability of occurrences in the system design phase. Same model can be built in the specification phase which creates the potential for early validation of the system design behavior.

Adaptive control of guided missiles
Tiryaki Kutluay, Kadriye; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents applications and an analysis of various adaptive control augmentation schemes to various baseline flight control systems of an air to ground guided missile. The missile model used in this research has aerodynamic control surfaces on its tail section. The missile is desired to make skid to turn maneuvers by following acceleration commands in the pitch and yaw axis, and by keeping zero roll attitude. First, a linear quadratic regulator baseline autopilot is designed for the control of the...
Path planning and coordinated guidance of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles
Ergezer, Halit; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
In this thesis, both off-line and online coordinated path planning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are studied. These problems have emerged due to the increasing needs for UAVs in both military and civil applications. To accomplish a certain objective, both the path planning for a single UAV and for multiple UAVs have been examined. Although there are previous studies in this field, we focus on maximizing the collected information instead of minimizing the total mission time. Studies carried out in this...
State Estimation and Control for Low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Söken, Halil Ersin (Springer, London/Berlin , 2015-04-01)
This book discusses state estimation and control procedures for a low-cost unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The authors consider the use of robust adaptive Kalman filter algorithms and demonstrate their advantages over the optimal Kalman filter in the context of the difficult and varied environments in which UAVs may be employed. Fault detection and isolation (FDI) and data fusion for UAV air-data systems are also investigated, and control algorithms, including the classical, optimal, and fuzzy ...
GPS based altitude control of an unmanned air vehicle using digital terrain elevation data
Ataç, Selçuk; Platin, Bülent Emre; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) is used to develop a prototype base test platform for flight testing of new control algorithms and avionics for advanced UAV system development applications. A control system that holds the UAV at a fixed altitude above the ground is designed and flight tested. Only the longitudinal motion of the UAV is considered during the controller design, hence its lateral motions are controlled manually by a remote control unit from the ground. UAV’s altitude with respect ...
Development of interior ballistic simulation software
Danış, Faik; Aksel, Mehmet Haluk; Ak, M. Ali; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
In this study, an interior ballistic simulation program is constructed for solid propellant conventional guns. In accordance with this purpose, interior ballistic calculations are studied numerically and two numerical models are produced: zero dimensional model and one dimensional model. Zero dimensional model, which is based on lumped parameter approach, examines variation of ballistic parameters with ignition of propellant grains in order to find muzzle velocity. In one dimensional code, the problem is mo...
