Project Summary

Increased demand for the data component of on-board equipment as well as for managing on-board equipment inpilotless aerial vehicles requires advanced achievements in the field of information technology. The most acceptable option for equipping the already available and future UAVs implies an integrated information and control system offering solutions to navigation and traffic management issues. The problem can be solved, including through the use of reliable, compact and high-precision strapdown inertial navigation systems.

The research aims to develop design and software solutions in the field of strapdown inertial navigation systems for multi-rotor robotic aircraft.

The research includes in three stages. Stage 1 implies a set of activities aimed at a detailed study of the available theoretical and applied experience, technological advance in the development of unmanned aerial vehicle control systems.

Stage 2 implies the development of methodological, technical and software solutions to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the navigation systems operation for robotic multirotor aircraft under variousconditions.

Stage 3 is to include an experimental research, develop design solutions for manufacturing components of the experimental model, perform the commissioning, develop proposals and recommendations for using the research outcomes in view of the technological partner’s capacity.
