dc.description.abstractMicro Air Vehicles (MAVs) are small, unmanned aerial systems that typically have a smaller than 12" wingspan. There are many practical applications for these MAVs, ranging from military use to real estate. In this project, we integrated autopilot control systems onto a pair of Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) MAVs. These control systems are responsible for stabilizing the inherently unstable tail-sitter airframes, allowing for stabilized flight by human operator or automated flight plans. Two autopilot control systems were developed, which were shown to be capable of stabilizing their airframes and executing maneuvers.
