    M.Sc. Dissertation Project: Multi-Layer Control of a Small UAV: Guidance and Autopilot Using Model Predictive Control. I designed a control system for the Aerosonde UAV based on a 3-layer control strategy, consisting of a path planner a guidance law and an autopilot. The control algorithms were implemented and simulations were carried out in MATLAB/Simulink. The aircraft model, the guidance law and the model predictive controller (MPC) for the autopilot were designed and modified to allow reliable control of the aircraft and path tracking in highly windy conditions.  An important outcome of this project was precise path tracking that was achieved using the newly designed control system.
