RUNNING ON EMPTY: THE DEVELOPMENT OF HELICOPTER AERIAL REFUELING AND IMPLICATIONS FOR FUTURE USAF COMBAT RESCUE CAPABILITIES A Research Paper Presented To The Research Department Air Command and Staff College In Partial Fulfillment of the Graduation Requirements of ACSC by Maj Tracy W. Colburn March 1997.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) have many important applications ranging from military to research and everyday civilian uses. The goal of this research is to extend the operational envelope of UAV’s by designing an autonomous in-flight refueling system.
A September 2005 report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) said “the need for aerial refueling could grow in the future” beyond the 600 tankers envisioned by the Air Force. Joint partners depend on Air Force tankers. The same CRS report confirmed the N avy’s preference for “big-wing” tankers for long-range missions.
Abstract Autonomous aerial refueling is a key enabling technology for both manned and unmanned aircraft where extended flight duration or range are required. The results presented within this paper offer one potential vision-based sensing solution, together with a unique test environment.
Abstract—Autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) is a crucial technique of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to push the fuel limits and play a great role in both civilian and military domains. This paper presents an accurate and robust binocular pose estimation algorithms optimized by brain storm optimization.
The technique of the boom docking into the receptacle of the receiver is a difficult problem in the procedure of autonomous aerial refueling. The technique by image tracking is a hot solution to the.
Autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) is an important capability for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to increase its flying range and endurance without increasing its size. This paper presents a novel tracking method that utilizes both 2D.
