Meteorology-Aware Multi-Goal Path Planning for Large-Scale Inspection Missions with Long-Endurance Solar-Powered Aircraft [article]

Philipp Oettershagen, Julian Förster, Lukas Wirth, Jacques Ambühl, Roland Siegwart
2017 arXiv   pre-print
MetPASS imports weather data from global meteorological models, propagates the aircraft state through an energetic system model, and then combines both into a cost function.  ...  While this makes them promising candidates for large-scale aerial inspection missions, their structural fragility necessitates that adverse weather is avoided using appropriate path planning methods.  ...  To analyze and verify the system models of Section 2 using correct weather data, Figure 13 thus shows flight data and the MetPASS output based on historical weather data (i.e. an a-posteriori weather  ...

2019 MATEC Web of Conferences  
Vertical flight path is shown to play very important role in achieving optimal flights, while horizontal paths also offer optimality possibilities, with a strong dependence on weather conditions.  ...  Optimal paths are derived, for each chosen mission, through an optimization process that takes advantage of the flexibilities that become available by implementation of Free Route Airspace.  ...  Similarly, a different flight path can be chosen, in order to avoid harsh weather patterns, of thunderstorms or severe turbulence, or restricted flight areas.  ...
