Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Guidance & Control Training
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Guidance & Control Training Course Description
This three-day Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Guidance & Control Trainingpresents both fundamental concepts and practical implementation of guidance laws for unmanned aerial vehicles. The guidance law design is considered from the point of view of control theory, i.e., as design of controls guiding unmanned aerial vehicles to targets (real targets for missiles and dummy targets – waypoints – for UAVs). Guidance laws design is considered as design of controls.
A detailed description of a class of guidance laws obtained based on Lyapunov approach is presented. The analytical expressions of the guidance law are given for the generalized planar and three-dimensional engagement models with axial and lateral controlled acceleration. The Lyapunov-Bellman approach is used to justify the choice of some guidance law parameters. The generalized guidance problem applicable for UAVs is considered.
Guidance of UAVs, which practical application in various areas continues growing, is considered. The guidance laws applied to a wide class of problems with UAVs are developed. The computational algorithms realizing these laws are tested in three applications – for surveillance problem, for the refueling problem and for the motion control of a swarm of UAVs.

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
