Development of an autopilot for automatic landing of an unmanned aerial vehicle
Arıbal, Seçkin; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents the design of an autopilot and guidance system for an unmanned aerial vehicle. Classical (PID) and modern control (LQT, Sliding Mode) methods for autonomous navigation and landing in adverse weather conditions are implemented. Two different guidance systems are designed in order to navigate through waypoints during normal and/or emergency flight. The nonlinear Pioneer UAV model is used in controller development and simulations. Aircraft is linearized at different trim points and total a...
Development of a dynamic flight model of a jet trainer aircraft
Gilani, Muhaned; Özgen, Serkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2007)
A dynamic flight model of a jet trainer aircraft is developed in MATLAB-SIMULINK. Using a six degree of freedom mathematical model, non-linear simulation is used to observe the longitudinal and lateral-directional motions of the aircraft following a pilot input. The mathematical model is in state-space form and uses aircraft stability and control derivatives calculated from the aircraft geometric and aerodynamic characteristics. The simulation takes the changes in speed and altitude into consideration due t...

Development of electrical and control system of an unmanned ground vehicle for force feedback teleoperation
Hacınecipoğlu, Akif; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Teleoperation of an unmanned vehicle is a challenging task for human operators especially when the vehicle is out of line of sight. Improperly designed and applied display interfaces directly affect the operation performance negatively and even can result in catastrophic failures. If these teleoperation missions are human-critical then it becomes more important to improve the operator performance by decreasing workload, managing stress and improving situational awareness. This research aims to develop elect...
Development of a pulsed fiber laser for ladar system
Serim, Muhammed Miraç; Baykal, Altan; İnam, Sıtkı Çağdaş; Department of Physics (2012)
IIn this thesis, the recently discovered Soft Gamma Ray Repeaters SGR J1833-0832, SWIFT J1822.3-1606 and SWIFT J1834.9-0846 are analysed using the archival Swift, RXTE, Chandra and XMM-Newton observations. The period fluctuations and timing noise properties of these sources are investigated. Spectral characteristics and long term frequency evolution of these sources are presented. Investigation for timing noise structure of these magnetars has shown a correlation between first frequency derivative of the sp...
