The development of solar-powered high-altitude UAV has gained increasing attention in the recent years. Several aircraft have had successful flights in the stratosphere, but despite advances in lightweight design they can only carry small payloads compared to the total takeoff mass. This paper suggests to eliminate the need for a landing gear by landing on(More)
A planar heated air jet was constructed. Its flow properties were characterized and shown to be both reproducible and in good agreement with the results of turbulence theory. The optical properties of the jet were studied with the help of a 632.8-nm He-Ne laser beam. The random phase modulations imposed on the wave front of the beam traversing the jet were(More)
