Abstract
This technical memorandum provides an overview of the state of the art of control system design for swarming UAVs. An overview of trends and future needs for military applications of UAVs is presented first. Linear controller design for aircrafts is then reviewed in the context of UAV systems. Comparative analysis of flight, collision avoidance and mission control approaches for swarming UAVs is provided. Then, advanced nonlinear UAV control design including several feedback linearization techniques. Neural Network implementation, Fuzzy Logic application incorporated with Linear and Nonlinear Model Predictive Control for swarming UAVs are analysed. Finally, the importance of Hardware in the Loop Simulation is discussed. Simulation and experimental validation results will be presented in subsequent reports.
