Variable Control For Improving Sensing Capability Of Flying Object
The purpose of the low-speed flying object studied here is to search a target on the ground. An IR sensor attached
to the object senses a moving target on the ground. The object discharged from a platform flies with parabolic motion and
precession. The IR sensor scans the ground, showing a certain trajectory on the ground. Therefore, the precession is the most
important factor affecting the sensing capability. In this study, to improve the sensing capability of the flying object, governing
equations are derived, and the characteristics are investigated by MATLAB numerical analysis. Also, the solution is presented
for optimal sensing through variable control.
