dc.description.abstractThe dissertation describes the development of a model helicopter based flight test platform for implementing autonomous six degree of freedom flight by a multiple input multiple output automatic control system. The focus of the research is two fold: i. Navigation system design centred about fusing multiple data and measurement sources using Kalman filtering techniques. ii. Electrical engineering of a complete avionics package to support guidance, navigation and control functions. Included are the results from several experiments conducted on the test platform, highlighting salient aspects and performance of the electrical and navigation systems.en
