Performance Maximization of Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicles via Integrated Passive and Active Morphing
In this conference paper integrated passive and
active morphing methodology is used on tactical unmanned
aerial vehicles (TUAVs) in order to maximize autonomous flight
performance. For this drive dynamic modeling of TUAVs
produced in Erciyes University Faculty of Aeronautics and
Astronautics Model Aircraft Laboratory is followed in order to
get state-space models and a simulation model. This TUAV
called as ZANKA-III is 50 kg, has range of around 3000 km,
endurance of around 28 h, and ceiling altitude of around 12500
m. Von-Karman turbulence modeling is benefited in order to
model atmospheric turbulence in simulation environment. A
stochastic optimization method namely simultaneous
perturbation stochastic approximation (i.e. SPSA) is applied in
order to get optimum morphing parameters (e.g. assembly
position of tailplane to fuselage and extension ratio of wing
