Student Theses - Aerodynamic Decelerator Systems Center
Not every student working on an ADSC project had to write a Master’s thesis. Some of the students also worked at the Autonomous Systems Engineering and Integration Laboratory on other UAV-related projects at the same time. Therefore, listed below are only several M.S. theses that were devoted to ADSC projects entirely
- Wind Estimation for Aerial Payload Delivery Systems Using GPS and IMU, by Mr. Matthew D. O’Brian, graduated in September of 2016.
- Conceptual and Preliminary Designs of a Low-Cost Precision Aerial Delivery System, by Mr. Andrew B. Hall, graduated in June of 2016.
- Payload Derived Position Acquisition System for Parachute Recovery Systems, by Mr. Ryan D. Tiaden, graduated in December of 2007.
- Autonomous Video Scoring of Air Delivery Payloads, by Mr. Robert M. Berlind, graduated in March of 2006.
- High Glide Parachute Aerodynamics Modeling, by Mr. Paul A. Mortaloni, graduated in December of 2002.
- Development of a Six-Degree-of-Freedom Model for a Fully Deployed G-12 AGAS Delivery System, by Mr. Christopher D. Junge, graduated in December of 2001.
- Hardware Integration of Parachute Guidance, Navigation, and Control for the Affordable Guided Airdrop System (AGAS), by Mr. James G. Johnson, graduated in September of 2001. (DOWNLOAD)
- Optimal Parachute Guidance, Navigation, and Control for the Affordable Guided Airdrop System (AGAS), by Mr. Timothy A. Williams, graduated in June of 2000. (DOWNLOAD)
