Autonomous Flight Control for a Titan Exploration Aerobot

  title={Autonomous Flight Control for a Titan Exploration Aerobot},
  author={A. Elfes and James F. Montgomery and Jeffery L. Hall and Sanjay S. Joshi and Jeffrey L. Payne and Charles F. Bergh},
Robotic lighter-than-air vehicles, or aerobots, provide a strategic platform for the exploration of planets and moons with an atmosphere, such as Venus, Mars, Titan and the gas giants. Aerobots have modest power requirements, extended mission duration and long traverse capabilities. They can execute regional surveys, transport and deploy scientific instruments and in-situ laboratory facilities over vast distances, and also provide wide-area surface sampling. With the arrival of the Huygens… CONTINUE READING
