Simulación y guíado de aeronaves utilizando programación orientada a objetos

By Lucas Peris Lozano


[EN] Flight simulators have become nowadays a fundamental tool for both pilot training and other applications such as the test of new mission plans and the development of guidance and control systems. The latter is very useful these days, especially when its applied to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The mission simulation of that kind of aircrafts could become a fundamental element for the development of unmanned aircrafts, specially in companies or institutions that do not have the required budget for an intensive flight test program. The ability of simulating a complete mission allows the engineers to find errors in the mission concept as well as errors due to the guidance and control philosophies applied to the vehicle, all that in a very simple and cost-effective way. It must be noted that an adequate mission planning procedure and the design of a guidance, navigation and control system of an aircraft are extremely complex subjects, which require an in-depth study in order to guarantee the operational security requirements. The scope of this work consists on the design and implementation of a graphical application which includes concepts of both aircraft simulation and their guidance and control. Additionally, a number of navigation instruments has been implemented in the simulator’s cockpit, which will lead to a more realistic vision of the simulation, as well as familiarize the reader with different concepts related to aircraft instrumentation. The main objective of this work is to offer a modular and easily expandable that can be used for educational purposes in the fields of software development for aeronautical applications. Due to the breadth of the subjects seen in this project, the depth of their implementation in this project has been different for each of them. However, all the aspects of this project have been treated equally from the points of view of documentation, study of the state of the art and the design of their systems and components.Peris Lozano, L.
