|Abstract: ||Homeland security missions executed in near-Earth
environments are often time consuming, labor intensive
and possibly dangerous. Aerial robots performing
tasks such as bomb detection, search-and-rescue
and reconnaissance could be used to conserve resources
and minimize risk to personnel. Flying in environments
which are heavily populated with obstacles yields
many challenges. Little data exists to guide the design
of vehicles and sensor suites operating in these environments.
This paper explores the challenges encountered
implementing several different sensing technolgies
in near-Earth environments. The results of applying
these technologies to control a robotic blimp are
presented to direct future work.|
