Paper Title
Analysis Of Dynamic Behavior Of A Ground Scanning Object Including Aerodynamic Effects

The purpose of the ground scanning object studied here is to search a target on the ground. An IR sensor attached to the object detects a moving target on the ground. The object discharged from a platform flies with parabolic motion and precession. The IR sensor scans the ground, showing a trajectory on the ground. In order to determine the dynamic behavior of the object during flight, aerodynamic forces and moments were obtained for various postures of the object, and included into the governing equation. In this study, the analysis procedure of dynamic behavior of a ground scanning object with aerodynamic loads is presented.
