At the end of 2015, our UAV research lab at the French Civil Aviation University took part to an atmospheric research project with Meteo-France (CNRS-GAME and ENM) teams at the Atmospheric Research Center of Lannemezan…Continue
Our research group (Ofer Eldad, Andrew Alexander, and Christian Claudel) at the University of Texas at Austin has implemented a supervisory control algorithm we developed to protect the flight envelope with either human control or autopilot.
Our test platform is the Bormatec Maja shown below:…Continue
