This thesis describes work in a variety of topics related to aerial robotics, including system identification, state estimation, control, and path planning. The path planners described in this thesis are used to guide a fixed-wing UAV along paths that optimize the aircraft's ability to track a ground target. Existing path planners in the literature either(More)
— This paper presents a UAV path planning strategy for optimizing the return over a finite-time horizon, where the return is specified by a bounded differentiable reward function. We represent paths using a simulated chain in a force field, where the forces are influenced by the reward function. The chain adapts continuously to changes in the return(More)
