La recerca del grup Icarus se centra en l'àmbit dels vehicles aeris no tripulats, també anomenats UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). Com el seu nom indica aquests aparells no disposen d'un pilot humà a bord. L'objectiu del grup és investigar tecnologies que permetin desenvolupar UAVs de baix cost amb capacitat per realitzar missions de caràcter civil de forma totalment autònoma per tal que puguin actuar en situacions crítiques, D-cub situations (Dull,Dirty,Dangerous).

  • Effects of En-route Wake Vortex on RPAS Operations 

    Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Marcos, Mònica; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Compared with common airliners, High/Medium Altitude Long Endurance (HALE/MALE) RPAS are lighter and have larger wingspan. Therefore RPAS will be extremely sensitive to vortex interactions with larger airliners, not ...
  • 4D Continuous Descent Operations Supported by an Electronic Flight Bag

    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Continuous Descent Operations (CDO) with Con- trolled Times of Arrival (CTA) at one or several metering fixes could enable environmentally friendly procedures without com- promising airspace capacity. Extending the ...
  • Paired t-test analysis to measure the efficiency impact of a flying RPAS in the non-segregated airspace 

    Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Pérez Batlle, Marcos; Lopez, Martin; Pastor Llorens, Enric (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In the context of the ERAINT project, a number of human-in-the-loop simulations were conducted to study the implications of integrating a remote piloted aircraft system (RPAS) into the managed airspace. For the purpose of ...
  • Flight testing Time and Energy Managed Operations (TEMO) 

    Verhoeven, Ronald; Bussink, Frank; Prats Menéndez, Xavier; Dalmau Codina, Ramon (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The expected growth in air traffic combined with an increased public concern for the environment, have forced legislators to rethink the current air traffic system design. The current air traffic system operates at its ...
  • Remotely piloted aircraft systems and a wireless sensors network for radiological accidents 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Guerrero Ibañez, Juan Antonio; Pastor Llorens, Enric; Gasull, Marti; Barrado Muxí, Cristina (HINDAWI, 2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In critical radiological situations, the real time information that we could get from the disaster area becomes of great importance. However, communication systems could be affected after a radiological accident. The ...
  • Communication technologies to design vehicle-to-vehicle and vehile-to-infrastructures applications 

    Reyes Muñoz, María Angélica; Barrado Muxí, Cristina; Guerrero Ibañez, Juan Antonio (2016-10)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Intelligent Transport Systems use communication technologies to offer real-time traffic information services to road users and government managers. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks is an important component of ITS where ...
