Simulation Based Envelope Protection Systems for Unmanned Rotorcraft

his paper presents the development of envelope protection systems for unmanned rotorcraft systems using simulation models. Issues associated with unmanned autonomy and automatic limit avoidance systems are addressed. The integration of two types of modular envelope protection systems into a UAV's flight control system, namely envelope protection using command limiting and control limiting is discussed. The development of an envelope protection system as used in Georgia Tech's Yamaha R-Max unmanned helicopter (GTMax) is presented as an example.
