Real-Time Automated Aerial Refueling with Stereo Vision: Overcoming GNSS-Denied Environments In or Near Combat Areas

In-flight refueling requires sustained minimal separation between paired aircraft with little room for error. In or near combat zones, wide-area GPS-denial or spoofing means that an GPS-independent system must be available. Regardless of the selected sensor package, a common set of properties must be satisfied to facilitate mid-air docking: a high degree of accuracy, precision, and integrity.
