Black box detection using UAV in FANETs
Author(s): Shankar Subramaniyam R, Deva Priya M
Abstract: The major issue in airborne accidents is the retrieval of black box. An Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) can be set inside the flight. The control of ejection is given to the pilot in the cockpit (manually). Flying Adhoc Network (FANET) is formed between the black box and the UAV. At the time of uncertain events like high jacking, engine failure etc., the pilot may trigger the UAV from its rear wing. The UAV should track the flight black box beacon signal, the UAV sends it to the Base Station (BS) via satellite. The upcoming idea is to setup UAV at the rear end of the aircraft (model airbus).The UAV is configured to send the response to the uncertain circumstances like highjack.
