As a part of PCUAV(Parent Child Unmanned Air Vehicle) project, the author participated in three areas. First, a study on the vehicle integration concept between a larger and two smaller UAVs are described. Various integration concepts were considered and compared from the point of view of performance and stability. The reintegration between the larger and the smaller UAVs are tried in the project. The procedure of the modeling, controller design and simulation for the reintegration is described next. A vision based positioning was developed for the three-axis position sensor for the reintegration. The procedure and the lessons learned during this development are also presented.
