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)
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)
