Unmanned Aircraft Navigation for Shipboard Landing using Infrared Vision
MetadataShow full item record
This paper addresses the problem of determining the relative position and orientation of an unmanned air vehicle with respect to a ship using three visible points of known separation. The images of the points are obtained from an onboard infrared camera. The paper develops a numerical solution to this problem. Both simulation and flight test results are presented.
