A man-portable, autonomously controlled aerial surveillance platform has been developed. The ultimate goal is to provide a method for obtaining remote sensing data using an inexpensive, expendable device. The Autonomous Tactical Reconnaissance Platform (ATRP) consists of a standard parafoil that carries an instrumentation payload for autonomous flight and(More)
In this paper, we describe the optimization of membership functions in an application employing a hierarchical Fuzzy Logic Controller. The size of the rule base is made manageable by using a unique formulation, known as Combs method, to help control the problem of 'exponential rule expansion'. The optimization is performed using a steady state genetic(More)
