Formation flying test-bed development
2008 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Formation flying is currently a very popular idea in the space industry especially for the small satellite clusters. A robotic testbed to demonstrate and validate the formation flying theory is being done in many universities or institutes. In the Space Research Centre at Cranfield University, an aerobot testbed project aim at demonstrating the formation flying algorithm is launched in 2005. In 2005, the investigation of the testbed and an ultrasonic position system are done by Denis Di Filippantonio. This thesis is the second step of the project. A communication system using IEEE 802.15.4 protocol is developed and the network ability is evaluated. A demo control board centred with a dsPIC microcontroller is developed to evaluate the communication network and some other subsystems, such as motor control, battery health monitor. A future thinking of the project is concluded in the last chapter.
