Turbo-jet Robot Hunts Typhoons
04/19/12 — National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan—An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) design team led by Wei-Hsiang Lai, professor of aeronautics and astronautics and director of advanced propulsion and power system research center at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) has innovated first turbo-jet robot aircraft named Sky Fortress-III anticipating to assist in typhoon surveillance and disaster prevention and marked a milestone in robotic aviation of Taiwan. The critical role of turbines in aircraft is well-acknowledged and the global market of UVA is about NT$100 billion annually. The aeronautics and astronautics research team in NCKU will put effort in integrating fields of geomatics, water…

New Models for Optimizing Mission Control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
04/16/10 — Engineers at Boston University are working on a theoretical approach to improve automated mission control and decision-making for fleets of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Automating these functions would let UAVs adapt their actions more rapidly in response to unforeseen events and ultimately require less human supervision. With funding from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, engineers at Boston University are working on a theoretical approach to improve automated mission control and decision-making for fleets of unmanned aerial vehicles. While unmanned systems currently rely on the automation of low-level functions, such as navigation, stabilization and trajectory, operating these systems is…
