WeP-2000 is a fl ight control system for fi xed wing aircraft integrated on a single
It consists of an embedded computer system, a GPS receiver, an integrated full
six-degree of freedom inertial measurement unit, a barometer, and an externally
connectable magnetometer. WeP-2000 combines integrated GPS/inertial
navigation with robust controller design methodologies and a low-power,
high-performance embedded computer. It provides attitude stabilization,
velocity control and waypoint guidance. A general purpose I/O interface
allows control of custom payload equipment. A data-link may be added
to interface with the weGCS ground control station. WeP-2000 was
specifi cally designed for mini fi xed wing aircraft where small size, light
weight, and low power consumption are essential requirements.
The adaptation of WeP-2000 for a specifi c fi xed wing aircraft
requires recorded data from a manually piloted fl ight. Parameter
identifi cation techniques are used to extract mathematical models
from the data and to synthesize a robust controller.
