UAV Navigation in depth: UAV Navigation High Quality Calibration

The aerospace industry is characterized by extremely demanding levels of Quality Assurance (QA), and this p

UAV Navigation in depth: Precision runway landing without DGPS/RTK
For fixed wing UAVs operating from traditional runways and landing strips, the landing manoeuvre is usually the most challenging and critical stage of any flight.
UAV Navigation In depth: autopilots for use in extreme conditions

UAV operations take place in all corners of the world and so UAV manufacturers must ensure that their platf

UAV Navigation in depth: Attitude estimation without GNSS
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology is used in UAV systems to measure translational states (position and velocity) both onboard the aircraft and also for the position of the Ground Control Station (GCS).
UAV Navigation in depth: Magnetometers, why are they critical for UAV navigation?
Since the earliest days of aviation pilots have used a magnetic compass for navigation, using the instrument to show heading information.
From signature to fully autonomous flight
This article describes the workflow for a regular Flight Control System (FCS) integration project.
UAV Navigation in depth: Flight Envelope
In aerodynamics, the flight envelope defines operational limits for an aerial platform with respect to maximum speed and load factor given a particular atmospheric density. The flight envelope is the region within which an aircraft can operate safely.
UAV Navigation in depth: External Datalink Selection
A datalink is a means of transmitting information from one point to another. When the transmission is accomplished using a wireless means, the datalink may also be referred to as a 'radio link' or 'radio modem'.

About

UAV Navigation is a privately-owned company that has specialized in the design of flight control solutions for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) since 2004. It is used by a variety of Tier 1 aerospace manufacturers in a wide range of UAV - also known as Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) or 'drones'. These include high-performance tactical unmanned planes, aerial targets, mini-UAVs and helicopters.
