Paper Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was designed to fulfill its mission autonomously. Its core technology for successful development of the UAV is to design of the flight control system (FCS) consisting of the flight control computer, the actuator, the sensor in order to replace the pilot. Each development procedure of FCS involves a verifying test for each step and was completed by an evaluation test of the comprehensive performance verification for the overall systems. The development tool, which is applied to this objective, is the HILS (Hardware-In-the-Loop-Simulation). That is, HILS is a cost-effective method for testing complex, flight-critical hardware before it is used in the real world. The real-time HILS is shown to develop/verify the performance of SURV UAV's controller in the lateral/directional control systems.
