Concept Refinement of a Payload Derived Position Acquisition System for Parachute Recovery Systems
MetadataShow full item record
The paper covers the continued development of a Payload Derived Position Acquisition System (PDPAS) to overcome current limitations posed on recovering the trajectory data for a generic parachute recovery system (PRS). The PDPAS is an instrumentation set and software algorithm that is to be installed onto PRS in order to estimate PRS state vector parameters in real-time for testing and operational use. The development of the PDPAD has progressed to a point where it is providing quality data and is ready for development into a usable instrumentation package. The paper discusses the concept of the PDPAS, the first implementation of the PDPAS, changes made to the PDPAS due to continued development, and the steps for needed for the PDPAS to be a validated instrumentation package.
