Deliverable 5.5 will present results of validation tests under realistic conditions executed on during the flight of UAV platform in a controlled area. In particular, this document will contain the legal authorisations, test plan, detailed test procedures, brief description of logistics activities, description of final implementaion actions specific to UAV platforms and report from flights execution.

Benchmark Requirements & Perform. Metrics Report

Deliverable 2.5 will provide the benchmark requirements in terms of performance and the corresponding performance metrics with different model uncertainities derived from aerodynamics, control effectiveness and sensor errors.

Project Summary

Deliverable 1.1 will present the summary of INCEPTION, describing main objectives of the project, means of goal achievement and work descriptions.

Hardware-in-the-loop Testing Report

Deliverable 5.3 will present the results and their analysis of simulations of INCEPTION system at a hardware-in-the-loop test bed. In particular, the document will contain the test plan, detailed test procedures, description of mathematical models used and report from simulations execution.

Feasibility & Performance Evaluation Report

Deliverable 6.2 will present the evaluation of autopilots and flight envelope protection and prediction strategies and examine whether they are applicable and certificable on a standard hardware used in aerospace applications. In particular, the document will present the current and future FCS hardware and software requirements for manned and unmanned aerial systems, current and future FCS certification requirements for manned and unmanned aerial systems, evaluation of algorithms implemented in INCEPTION in technical terms, evaluation of algorithms and design process with respect to the derived FCS requirements and conclusions on aerial platforms suitable for application of developed algorithms.
