The use of Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) applications is growing in both civilian and military fields. Fully autonomous UAS applications are useful to a variety of disciplines; for example, they can provide structural damage inspections in critical or dangerous areas (e.g. the L'Aquila earthquake in Italy, or Hurricane Ike in Galveston, Texas, USA). However,(More)
In this paper a procedure that creates a three dimensional (3D) virtual map useful for Safe Landing of an UAV Quadcopter [3], through a Ultrasonic Sensor Model is presented. Reflective sound waves produced from sonar sensor were analyzed and managed to generate a constructed plane where the UAV landing is possible and safe. The low-cost sensor gives(More)
In the last few years, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have been attracting enormous research interest, being employed in military and civilian missions (e.g. search and rescue, disaster assessment, urban traffic monitoring, 3D mapping, etc.) that would be risky or impossible for a human to perform. For autonomous or aided operations (e.g. automatic or aided(More)
GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems)-based navigation is not sufficient to support air navigation in specific applications; so it is necessary to introduce Augmentation Systems. Since 1993, the civil aviation community through RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) and the ICAO (International Civil Air Navigation Organization) have been(More)
