Briefly about our institution

The Philadelphia Flight Control Laboratory (PFCL) is the heart of the Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) research group within the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. The scope of the interdisciplinary research performed in the lab includes high-level control objectives such as cooperative team mission planning (task assignment) and multi-robot coordination, motion planning (guidance) with regard to

optimizing trajectories for dynamical systems, trajectory-following, low-level control objectives focused on the control of single vehicles and/or platforms, and also vision-aided single- and multi-vehicle autonomous navigation in uncertain environments. Additional research topics pursued in the lab are advanced flight displays, pilot-vehicle modelling, and active manipulators.
