Evaluation of dynamic behavior of a deployable wing UAV by drop test

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Aerial deployment technique is required for next-generation airplanes. In this technique, dynamic behavior of an airplane during deployment motion is one of the critical problems. In order to evaluate this, drop test via a balloon was performed for a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which has a foldable wing. Flight data and motion were analyzed and it became apparent that symmetric deployment motion by a servo & wire type folding method deployable airplane has no large influence on dynamic behavior.
