Abstract

This paper describes modeling, simulation, algorithm, and flight validation activities done to explore the feasibility and highlight the issues with precision cargo delivery from an unmanned helicopter onto or off-of a moving platform. The challenge is to precisely control a slung load under a helicopter with a high enough bandwidth to allow for the rendezvous with a stochastically accelerating ground target. To aide this effort, models are developed of the slung load and the moving platform.
