  Monday, October 15th 2001 13:14

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple &quot;moving
map&quot; control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to
operation under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: A Java port of the servo library for the onboard computer system. Control
curves are in progress, but not enabled by default.

autopilot 1.3
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/users/tramm/)
  Sunday, October 21st 2001 11:38

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving map"
control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to operation
under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: New onboard features include servo sampling (up to 8 servos/gyros), servo
outputs (up to 8 servos), UART support, periodic tasks, and a command
interpreter. New Ground station features include control curves and the
ability to talks to the onboard software.

autopilot 1.4
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/users/tramm/)
  Friday, October 26th 2001 00:47

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving map"
control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to operation
under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: The servo output has been fixed. The interrupt routine has been recoded to
better optimize into AVR instructions. The servo/gyro sampling has also
been recoded to avoid any 32-bit computations. This compiles into much
faster code. The groundstation code has also had the control curve package
reworked. It is now configured for both prototype helicopters, and can be
used with either the homebrew AVR, or the commercial SSC.

autopilot 1.5
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/~tramm/)
  Sunday, October 28th 2001 20:41

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving map"
control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to operation
under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: This is the first release that samples gyros and performs very rudimentary
rate integration on the gyros. The outputs are collected and sent to the
serial port, where the EFIS displays the attitude of the sensors. You can
run the "hover" program on the AVR for servo input, or "pwmeter" for gyro
calculations.

autopilot 1.6
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/~tramm/)
  Friday, November 9th 2001 21:48

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving map"
control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to operation
under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: New dual-needle gauge widgets for CHT, EGT, N1, N2, Fuel, and Volts, the
onboard realtime system adds support for the MG100 rate gyro from
Gyration.com and removes the PWM gyro code, and rate integration is still
the rough approximation. Stability code has been started, but will cause a
crash and damage to the prototype. Servo output is also back in the code,
with fixes for a few glitches and restored jitter output.

autopilot 1.7.2
  by Tramm Hudson (http://freshmeat.net/~tramm/)
  Wednesday, November 21st 2001 16:59

About: autopilot is a command and control system for  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. It
provides hands-off  flight controls for helicopters and simple "moving map"
control for the ground station. Manual control is similar to operation
under IFR with three axis EFIS. 

Changes: This release makes use of the home-brew two axis (four degree of freedom)
strapdown IMU. It outputs pitch/roll linear acceleration and pitch/roll
angular acceleration on the serial port. In the code, the ADC and UART can
be polled or interrupt driven. The duty-cycle pulse sampling is using the
1-pass algorithm. The command processor and stabilization code has been
removed and will be restored in the next release.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
