Adaptive Guidance and Control for Autonomous Formation Flight

  title={Adaptive Guidance and Control for Autonomous Formation Flight},
  author={J. Moon and Ramachandra Sattigeri and J. V. R. Prasad and Anthony J. Calise},
Autonomous formation flight is a mechanism for achieving a pre-specified formation between a group of unmanned aerial vehicles. This paper presents an approach to autonomous formation flight in a leader-follower configuration using an adaptive output feedback control technique. Using measurements of the line-of-sight range and angles, an adaptive guidance law is formulated for the follower that generates velocity commands so that the follower maintains a prescribed range from the leader in the… CONTINUE READING
