Research Objectives

Nowadays unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are used in applications deemed dangerous or unreachable by manned air vehicles. It is estimated that nearly 8000 UAVs (worth $3.9 billion) were produced worldwide between 1994 and 2003 [1]. Their applications have been widespread and included: the agricultural industry, environmental control, mineral exploration, news broadcasting, unexploded mine exploration and other military related applications [2]. Furthermore the design of UAVs has been widespread ranging from simple fixed-wing aircraft [3, 4] to complex quadrotor air vehicles [5, 6]. One of the reasons behind this growing interest, especially in the military industry, is that UAVs are relatively cheap to manufacture in comparison to current fighter aircraft.
