Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We have been developing the RPRV (Remotely-Piloted Research Vehicle) flight experiment system. In such a system, it is essential to manage a great number of complicated experimental procedures before, during, and after the flight in order to obtain satisfactory data. MCL (Menu Control Language) has been developed in order to write an interactive program for the management of such experiments. For the flight data processing, not only flight data themselves, but various other data and information relevant to the experiment are indispensable. If the data and the related documents are recorded separately, however, consistent management of them becomes quite difficult as the number and kinds of data increase. FDI (Free-format Data Input) system has been developed in order to solve this problem. It makes easier and simpler the management of he various kinds of data and the information connected to them
