Abstract

This paper develops a new approach by integrating hard and soft control strategies for Guidance, Navigation, and Control of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The desired features from both soft and hard control are incorporated in the development of a navigation controller and UAV autopilot. The navigation controller is responsible for the generation of flyable trajectories based on desired GPS waypoint destinations. The UAV autopilot is responsible for steering the UAV along these desired trajectories while maintaining stable control.
