USING UAV-LTA FOR ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING
Vasile PRISACARIU, Sorin Cheval
ABSTRACT. – UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) technologies are currently mature proven by their use in both civilian and military fields. Atmospheric monitoring involves certain technical and operational conditions and limitations of UAVs, especially in situations involving static and quasi-static flight, and the performance level of the sensors determines the degree of confidence in data samplings in the interest area. Aerodynamic optimization aspects of airship UAV result in enhanced flight characteristics and performance. The article proposes to present and analyze a technical solution for the use of blimp UAVs to monitor aerodynamic atmospheric and environmental conditions of this air vector, and a presentation of the types of sensors (navigation and mission).
Keywords: environmental sensors, UAV-LTA, flight data, aerodynamics analysis.
