Paper Title:
Portable Ground Control and Test Station Design for Robotic Subminiature Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
  Abstract

Subminiature fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAVs) present enormous potential. In order to develop a robotic SUAV with significant levels of autonomy, a portable ground control and test station (GCTS) is studied and developed. The requirements of GCTS are analyzed and the overview of GCTS is given firstly. Then the main operation modes of digital data link module are detailed. As the core of the portable GCTS, a set of software tools, including embedded map and trajectory visualization, 3-dimention attitude viewer, avionics panel, plotting utility, mission and control configuring, flight data and mission video storage and playback, etc., are researched and developed. The flight experiments application validate that the portable GCTS satisfy most of the requirements, and mitigates the difficulties and cost of development of the robotic SUAV remarkably.
