About the book

Flight performance and safety of a flying vehicle greatly relies on three main subsystems including the control unit, communication unit and instrumentation system. The control and guidance system is responsible for accurate trajectory control of flight vehicles. The communication unit is effectively used for sending or receiving information from the flight vehicles to ground station and vice versa. The instrumentation unit is categorized into two sub units that include the on board sensor units and ground station based units.

The book will covers topics such as flight control system, fault tolerant flight control, stability, fixed and rotary wing UAVs stability and control, aircraft and helicopters stability and control, communication techniques, aeronautical telemetry, radars application, data loggers with communication channels for flight vehicles, carrier frequency offset (CFO) Estimation, aerodynamic load simulators, actuators testing, HWIL testing and data loggers. Chapters in all the three areas covering basic theories, applications and new ideas are welcome for submission.

Publishing process

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
