Abstract

Precise landing on planets, moons and other larger celestial bodies requires powered descent, hovering, and vertical landing. Similarly, recent and future concepts for \glspl{rlv} also involve a vertical take-off and landing. The development of \gls{gnc} for this type of vehicles is a challenging task. To support this, a \gls{vtol} vehicle has been developed for demonstrating the capability of conducting soft landings, smooth ascent, and hovering. The focus was put on a platform for testing new and advanced \gls{gnc} algorithms that employ a base set of sensors and actuators typically present on such vehicles. It should represent a dynamics similar to a thrust vector controlled planetary lander or \gls{rlv}, and should allow fast turn-around times as well as rapid prototyping capabilities for testing. Additionally, the platform should provide the option for an additional small payload, \eg, enhancing the on-board avionics with different or more precise sensors. The result of this platform development is \glslink{eagle}{\glsentryshort{eagle} (\glsentrylong{eagle})}\glsunset{eagle}. Its lift-of-mass is about \SI{30}{\kilo\gram} and it is powered by a jet engine with a maximum thrust of \SI{400}{\newton}.
