Flight Control of Airships
What is it about?
As a typical lighter-than-air vehicle, an autonomous airship has an enormous yet untapped potential as a low-speed or even steady platform for various applications such as telecommunications, broadcasting relays, region navigation, public security, disaster detection, environmental monitoring, and so on . For several of the just-mentioned applications, the airship must often sustain over a specified geolocation in the presence of external disturbances. A key technical challenge for an autonomous airship is positioning, or the ability to sustain a quasi-stationary flight state over a certain target.
