Polyvionics, at the "Fête de la Science" 2010

Stéphane Querry, PhD candidate at Polyvionics, presented a part of his research work about aircraft piloting through artificial intelligence, in a French scientific event called “Fête de la science”, through a LSIIT (UMR CNRS 7005 – University of Strasbourg ) stand.

Polyvionics involved in a contract with the European Defence agency (E.D.A.)

Polyvionics is proud to be involved, inside a consortium led by the Italian company “Ingegneria dei sistemi”, in a contract with the European Defence Agency (E.D.A.) for the feasibility analysis of an innovative navigation system (based on SAR systems) for UAV and cruise missiles.

The main goals of the project are:

1. Feasibility Study of hierarchical and distributed navigation filters which can accept SAR and Interferometric SAR (InSAR) measurements, based on the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) approach for providing enhanced Fault Detection, Isolation and Recovery or Reconfiguration (FDIR) capabilities.

2. Feasibility Study of mission-suited SAR sensors for terrain landmark extraction and Digital Terrain Model (DTM) reconstruction

3. Design and assessment of SAR autofocusing, terrain landmark extraction and classification algorithms for calibrating the a/c position and attitude, thereby enabling the recovery of possible course deviation caused by uncompensated IMU drift due to GPS lack of integrity.

4. Feasibility Study of SAR interferometric techniques for DTM retrieval, useful for geo-referencing the scene under investigation in presence of gap filling of terrain landmarks

5. Improvements in the fidelity of extended SAR image simulation, driven by sensor signal processing characteristics and environmental representations, useful for testing and assessing the technological demonstrator

Partnership between Polyvionics and the "Ponts et Chaussées" engineering school

The “Ponts et Chaussées” engineering school has launched several UAV projects, and has chosen Polyvionics for the avionics part development of their innovative systems.


Polyvionics involved in the Artificial Intelligence for the Aerospace field

Artificial Intelligence has a very important role in the Polyvionics research, and a very close partnership with the LSIIT (UMR CNRS 7005 – University of Strasbourg ) has been settled for the use of AI in the aerospace science: Static optimization for systems conception, and dynamic optimization for autonomous systems conduction.

The LSIIT welcomes Stéphane Querry for a PhD research program, through the use of AI for aircraft (and autonomous system) model identification, trajectory optimization and mission conduction, in partnership with Pr. Pierre Collet.


The I.P.S.A. aerospace school qualified for the DGA/ONERA MAV competition

I.P.S.A. (French aerospace school) ordered a Micav-PRST (former Polyvionics autopilot) system for a UAV competition organized by ONERA, and funded by DGA.


The Polyvionics work granted by an AAAF prize

We had the very great honor to receive an AAAF PRIZE for the development of our Micav-PRST (former Polyvionics autopilot) system!




CNES (French Space Agency)

C.N.E.S. (French space agency) ordered few Micav-PRST (former Polyvionics autopilot) systems for a UAV demonstrator used in the PERSEUS program. A partnership is also being settled.
