Sponsorship: Air Force Research Laboratory / Munitions Directorate. During this project we focused on four primary objectives which are listed below. 1. Magnetometer Integration. Integrate and flight test magnetometers with the current version of the autopilot (Spiral 1). 2. Height-Above-Ground Sensor Integration. Integrate and flight test height-above-ground sensors with the current version of the autopilot (Spiral 1). 3. Automatic Gain Adjustment. Develop and flight test automatic gain adjustment algorithms that automatically tune the servo loops of the autopilot. 4. Automatic Trim Seeking. Develop and flight test automatic trim seeking algorithms to recursively estimate the trim values of the UAV.
