UAV Contingency Planning for Loss of Communications

Share

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can encounter loss of communications for a variety of reasons.  The vehicle software must be robust enough to recover from such an event.

This lecture will discuss ways to maintain control of UAVs.

Dr. Kwan’s bio:

Chiman Kwan received his BS with honors in Electronics from the Chinese
University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, in 1988, and his MS and Ph.D. degrees in
electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington,
TX, USA, in 1989 and 1993, respectively. From April 1991 to February 1994,
he worked in the Beam Instrumentation Department of the SSC (Superconducting
Super Collider National Laboratory) in Dallas, TX, where he was heavily
involved in the modeling, simulation and design of modern digital
controllers and signal processing algorithms for the beam control and
synchronization system. He later joined the Automation and Robotics Research
Institute in Fort Worth, TX, where he applied intelligent control methods
such as neural networks and fuzzy logic to the control of power systems,
robots, and motors. Between July 1995 and April 2006, he was the Vice
President of Intelligent Automation, Inc. in Rockville, MD, USA. He has
served as a Principal Investigator/Program Manager for more than 100
different projects.  He is currently the Chief Technology Officer of Signal
Processing, Inc. and Applied Research LLC, Rockville, MD, leading research
and development efforts in chemical agent detection, biometrics, speech
processing, image fusion, mission planning, and fault diagnostics and
prognostics. He has authored or coauthored over 70 papers in archival
journals and over 170 additional papers published in major conference
proceedings. He is the holder of 9 patents and has 30 invention disclosures.
He is listed in the New Millennium edition of Who’s Who in Science and
Engineering. His primary research areas include robust and adaptive control
methods, signal and image processing, communications, neural networks, and
pattern recognition applications. Dr. Kwan is a member of Tau Beta Pi, SPIE,
IET, and IEEE.
