ORION: Autonomous unmanned aircraft counter-drone system

Presenting our contribution for the IEEE Communications Society Student Competition along with Nicolas Souli. The  ORION  system  aims  to  establish  an autonomous  counter-drone  system  that  employs  algorithms  for  detecting  and  tracking  a  rogue  drone,  in  conjunction  with wireless interception capabilities to jointly jam the rogue drone while achieving self-positioning…

RPS: Relative Positioning System

For reliable operation, next generation autonomous agents will need enhanced situational perception as well as precise navigation capabilities. The global navigation satellite system (GNSS) signals that are utilized by practically all modern positioning systems cannot satisfy this requirement for heighten autonomy levels and positioning is becoming…
