This book provides very detailed analytical descriptions of guidance laws for UAVs … I think it is a good reference book for those who are involved or are interested in autonomous UAV control systems. The concrete theoretical aspects provided in this book will help reader to further explore optimal solutions towards future and autonomous UAVs.
