Abstract

Current research has been directed in the use of autonomous airships as less expensive alternatives to satellites. A key component in these applications is the control and guidance systems. In this paper an existing airship has been considered, and the control and guidance laws have been tailored to it. Furthermore, the addressed airship is limited in its control authority. This presents a challenge in these designs. A realistic model of the airship was developed to test the performance of a guidance and control scheme. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the approach.
