3D flight plan for an autonomous aircraft

Abstract : The objective of this paper is to generate a 3D flight plan, based on the modified A*algorithm for a partially reusable launcher vehicle. An autonomous aircraft constitutes the first stage of this RLV. Because the simple geometric path planning procedure can be implemented in real time, periodically updated paths can easily be generated to accommodate a slowly drifting wind direction and/or wind speed. The second part of the paper presents parametric curves. This study is based on the curvature and torsion properties of these curves.
