Uysal, F. Caro Cuenca, M. Otten, M.P.G. de Wit, J.J.M. Publication year 2021 Abstract Continuous navigation is crucial for small drones when flying a pre-planned route or during autonomous flight. In scenarios where a global positioning system (GPS) signal is unavailable, drift in the onboard sensors causes the inertial navigation system (INS) to quickly deviate from the planned route. This paper proposes a radar-aided navigation method for small drones which is able to estimate the horizontal velocity and height of the platform independently from GPS. The method is based on an omnidirectional radar system and takes advantage of multilook processing to increase estimation precision. Simulations and experiments verify that an omnidirectional radar can be used to successfully estimate the velocity and course of a small drone platform Subject Defence, Safety and Security To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:7fcfa21c-8108-48f6-9fd2-b445e4fb95b6 TNO identifier 952770 Publisher IEEE Source IEEE Radar conferemce 2021, Atlanta 11-14 mei 2021 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
