  Parafoil-cargo system, as a complex system, is used widely today and has various usages. This system is a polynomial complex whose components, have dynamic interactions and relative movements. The present study deals with the multibody modeling and simulation of nine degrees of freedom flight dynamics ...  Read More

Optimal Flight Trajectory Planning using Improved Evolutionary Method for UCAV Navigation in 3D Constrained Environments

R.Ali Abbaspour; A.A. Heidari

Volume 13, Issue 1 , June 2020, , Pages 83-89

  This article addresses a new approach to 3D path planning of UCAVs. To solve this NP-hard problem, imperialist competitive algorithm (ICA) was extended for path planning problem. This research is related to finding optimal trajectories before UCAV missions. Developed planner provides 3D optimal paths ...  Read More
