Project Description - Near Space Plane Project
This project aims to develop software for a high altitude UAV. Software is written in C# for .NET (ground station) and NETMF (plane onboard cpu). The concept design is a delta plane with two controlled elevons.
The software contains:
  • Hardware Drivers
    • BMP085 Barometer (ready)
    • L3G4200D Gyro (ready)
    • LSM303DLM Accelerometer/Magnetometer (ready)
    • SkyTraq Venus6 GPS Recever using binary protocol (ready)
    • RFM22b RF-Modul (20 dbm) (basic functions ready)
    • Temperature (ready)
  • Analog input handling for pilot tube, battery current and voltage (ready)
  • IMU 9DoF - Sensor merging (ready - now a not self implemented kalman filter is used)
  • Navigation (in progress)
