  • Control of Multivehicle Aerospace Systems

    Aircraft and spacecraft have been perhaps the most visible and awe-inspiring applications for control technology. The continuing march toward, and achievement of, ever higher performance in flight control have seemed inexorable and a perpetual source of problems as challenging as any that controls researchers could wish for. Yet, while difficult problems in vehicle flight control remain outstanding, it is fair to say that algorithmic research in this area has encountered the law of diminishing returns. As discussed in Chapter 11, substantial challenges remain in single-vehicle control, related to the cost-effective development and deployment of controllers rather than new algorithms and theories. That aerospace control remains a vigorous, exciting field from algorithmic and theoretical perspectives as well can be attributed in large part to a broad new research direction: the control of multivehicle systems. This chapter discusses three different and important multivehicle aerospace challenges. The first is in commercial aviation, where government and industry are seeking radical alternatives to today's air traffic control technology. Concepts such as ?>free flight?> promise substantial improvements in safety and operational efficiencyï¿¿-ï¿¿under the proviso that the enabling control technology is available. The second example presented is formation flying for uninhabited combat air vehicles (DCAVs), with fleet coordination and autonomy requiring new fundamental research. Finally, the control of satellite clusters is discussed. This application is motivated by the cost and failure rates of large monolithic satellites and by the additional capabilities, such as synthetic aperture radar, that can be achieved by p recise positioning of spatially distributed satellites. Multivehicle systems are now a topic of general interest in control and automation; the interest is not limited to aerospace. Chapter 14 notes applications to road vehicles, including platooning automobiles.

  • Beidou System

    This chapter provides a brief history of BeiDou and summarizes current plans of BeiDou System (BDS) and describes what is known about BeiDou signals. BeiDou is an operational regional system growing into a global system. BeiDou Phase 1 provided regional positioning and short messaging service using radio determination satellite system (RDSS). RDSS positioning accuracy depends on a number of factors, including the accuracy of measuring the round-trip interrogation and response, knowledge of the satellite locations, knowledge of the terminal's altitude, and the geometry. GEO satellites are denoted BeiDou-G, IGSO satellites are designated BeiDou- IGSO, and MEO satellites designated BeiDou-M. The ground system is known as the BeiDou Ground Base Enhancement System (BGBES). BeiDou Phase 2 transmits six signals on three carrier frequencies; two of which have a signal intended for open use is in- phase, with a signal for authorized use on the corresponding quadrature component.

  • SATNAV SIGNALS

    Satnav signals link the satellites to receivers in the user segment and the control segment. Like many other aspects of a satnav system, signals must be exquisitely engineered and carefully implemented in order for the system to provide the expected high levels of performance. This chapter provides an overview of signals and their mathematical representations, with an emphasis on direct-sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) signals and specific spreading modulations used for satnav. It introduces mathematical models for the effects of Doppler shift and propagation through the dispersive ionosphere. Satnav signals undergo Doppler shifts caused by a combination of satellite motion and receiver motion. The chapter provides a primarily qualitative discussion of satnav signal characteristics, identifying tradeoffs, and providing perspectives involving signal design choices. It then establishes the detailed mathematics of satnav signals, identifying characteristics, parameters, and models employed in descriptions of specific signals and in definition of receiver processing.

  • Introduction

    This is the introductory chapter of this book, which describes satellite-based navigation and timing (satnav), the engineering of systems that transmit radio frequency (RF) ranging signals from a constellation of satellites so that a passive receiver can determine time and its position. The chapter discusses the changing scene of satnav we are currently witnessing what makes satnav so attractive, its current status, and its prospects. It outlines the principles behind satnav, including the basic architectures of satellites and receivers. It also summarizes commonly employed attributes that apply to any satnav system. Building and launching satnav satellites are both very expensive, with the cost for developing, building, and launching a satellite typically exceeding 100 million US dollars. The aviation community has defined four attributes that apply to any satnav system which includes accuracy, integrity, continuity, and availability.

  • Quasi-Zenith Satellite System

    The Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) is the first announced regional satnav system that is not an SBAS. It had been intended as an augmentation to GPS and other global satnav systems, and now is planned to be a standalone regional system as well. This chapter first provides a brief history of QZSS and summarizes current plans, followed by an overview of QZSS. Then, it provides detailed characteristics of QZSS signals. QZSS is being developed by the Government of Japan. Its early development was led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, which sponsors a web site providing comprehensive information about QZSS, including links to the QZSS IS. Japan currently plans a constellation of satellites in geostationary and inclined non-geostationary orbits covering the Asia- Pacific region. QZSS will broadcast eight signals on four carrier frequencies, and uses the same terminology as GPS for most of its carrier frequencies and frequency bands.

  • A Novel Admission Control for Multimedia LEO Satellite Networks

    Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite networks are deployed as an enhancement to terrestrial wireless networks in order to provide broadband services to users regardless of their location. In addition to global coverage, these satellite systems support communications with hand-held devices and offer low cost-per- minute access cost, making them promising platforms for personal communication services (PCS). LEO satellites are expected to support multimedia traffic and to provide their users with some form of quality of service (QoS) guarantees. However, the limited bandwidth of the satellite channel, satellite rotation around the Earth and mobility of end-users makes QoS provisioning and mobility management a challenging task. One important mobility problem is the intra- satellite handoff management. While global positioning systems (GPS)-enabled devices will become ubiquitous in the future and can help solve a major portion of the problem, at present the use of GPS for low-cost cellular networks is unsuitable. RADAR - refined admission detecting absence region - a novel call admission control and handoff management scheme for LEO satellite networks is proposed in this chapter. A key ingredient in this scheme is a companion predictive bandwidth allocation strategy that exploits the topology of the network and contributes to maintaining high bandwidth utilization. Our bandwidth allocation scheme is specifically tailored to meet the QoS needs of multimedia connections. The performance of RADAR is compared to that of three recent schemes proposed in the literature. Simulation results show that our scheme offers low call dropping probability, providing for reliable handoff of on-going calls, and good call blocking probability for new call requests, while ensuring high bandwidth utilization.
