In this research, fundamental studies on the guidance/control system for VTOL rockets which is applied for the low-cost reusable rockets, recovery system for rocket booster, lunar landing system, etc. Among the basic functions which is required for the advanced VTOL rocket system are the attitude control system using gas jet thrusters, the autonomous guidance system, the autonomous landing system, etc. In order to develop the control system design for these functions, the following studies are performed.
1.Fundamental study on the VTOL rocket system and preliminary design of reusable rockets.
2.Fundamental study of guidance and control system utilizing visual sensors and the development of image processing algorithms for the visual sensor.
3.Construction of an experimental mobile robot which has an autonomous guidance and control system with visual sensors.
4.Development of a sensor fusion system which integrates the inertial sensors and the visual sensors.
5.Construction of three-axis attitude control test bed using gas jet thrusters and the experimental study of attitude control strategy.
6.Development of an optimal bang-bang control strategy for the experimental attitude control system using gas jet thrusters.
