Testing Platform for the Validation of Vertical Take-off and Vertical Landing (VTVL) Control Algorithms

A. Toader and G. Tecuceanu
Abstract—This paper presents preliminary results obtained during the development of a Vertical Take-Off and Vertical Landing (VTVL) demonstrator. The aim of this vehicle is to provide the experimenter with a testing platform for the validation of advanced control techniques related to reusable launchers and landers, and additionally for the assessment of visual navigation systems.

Index Terms—Reusable launch vehicle, VTVL demonstrator, VTVL control algorithms.
