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.
