dc.description.abstractThe advent of GPS has afforded the aerospace controls engineer a powerful, new means of controlling air vehicles This work explores a new method of designing and implementing controllers and guidance systems for autonomous control of air vehicles utilizing a GPS integrated guidance, navigation and control system. This is a subject of considerable interest when realizing controllers to track reference trajectories given in an inertial reference frame. The design, implementation, and dynamic simulation of a precise tracking trajectory controller for an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) is presented. This design provides a natural conversion of commands and other measured outputs (such as GPS signals) from an inertial reference frame to a body-fixed reference frame. This achieves automatic recruiting of the actuators while preserving the properties of the original design (linearization principle).
