This paper describes the hardware development for an autonomous formation flight research project at West Virginia University. Each aircraft test bed was outfitted with an inertial navigation system (INS), GPS receiver and telemetry system tailored to perform the formation flight experiment. This paper provides a detailed summary about the aircraft(More)
Field studies demonstrate that natural populations of a group of water striders (Heteroptera: Gerridae) that share a common mating system are characterized by weak assortative mating by size and by large sizes of mating males and females relative to single individuals. This study presents an experimental assessment of the components of mating that may(More)
This paper presents the results obtained from a formation flight experiment using 3 YF-22 research UAVs built and developed at West Virginia University. In the planned 3-aircraft flight configuration, a radio control (R/C) pilot maintains manual control of the `leader' aircraft while two autonomous `follower' aircraft maintain a pre-defined position and(More)

This investigation was concerned with analysis of the composition and metabolism of developing adipose tissues in the postnatal hamster. Particular attentions were given to the development of brown fat and the relationship of brown and white fats to each other. Correlations with previous histological studies are stressed. The parameters studied were water(More)
