F-18 Stereo Vision Data collection - FY17

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

F-18 Stereo Vision Data collection - FY17
Technical Approach / Expected Accomplishment:• Use imagery from cameras to provide on-board range maps of terrain• Non-static stereo camera system (wing-tips of aircraft, 2 UAVs as test bed)requires extraction of stereo geometry before applying stereo algorithm• Differential GPS module coupled with each camera to provide distance between cameras and precision time synchronization• Prove of concept on JPL tandem UAV system• Evaluate quality of 3D reconstruction for terrain relative navigation (TRN)and collision avoidance at low altitudes on AFRC fixed-wing aircraft (8ftDROID UAV, AFRC F18 test aircraft – leveraging regular training flights) More »
