Unmanned Air Vehicle and Simulation .
Keywords: Launch dynamics, Surveillance, Target designation
AbstractA general account of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) is given and their various roles, both lethal and non-lethal ones, are discussed. Elements of an UAV system used for reconnaissance, surveillance and target designation have been described to highlight the role of simulation in acquisition, design, development, testing, evaluation, and operation of such a system. Various applications of simulation studies for UAVs are mentioned. An attempt has been made to highlight how simulation helps in identifying design deficiencies and thus improve the design through the following three typical problems encountered during design and development of UAVs at the Aeronautical Development establishment:(i) launch dynamics of Lakshya, (ii) tow system dynamics, Lakshya tow body, and (iii) hardware in-line simulation -way point navigation-Nishant.
