Abstract

This document aims to present the doctorate proposal to be developed in the Doctoral Program in Computer Science and Computational Mathematics at ICMC / USP. The thesis will address the development of autonomous systems for mission control and flight safety in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The mission control will be ensured through the implementation of Mission Oriented Sensor Array (MOSA) system, which is responsible for the proper fulfillment of mission. The flight safety will be guaranteed by the In-Flight Awareness (IFA) system, which is responsible for monitoring the aircraft operation. The whole operation of the mentioned systems will require the development of algorithms able to guarantee the proposed functionality. The systems will be validated in three steps: simulations with flight simulator FlightGear, simulations using Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) and real flights, where the systems will be embedded in the Ararinha UAV model developed at ICMC / USP.
