Welcome to paparazziuav.png

Paparazzi UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is an open-source drone hardware and software project encompassing autopilot systems and ground station software for multicopters/multirotors, fixed-wing, helicopters and hybrid aircraft that was founded in 2003. Paparazzi UAV was designed with autonomous flight as the primary focus and manual flying as the secondary. From the beginning it was designed with portability in mind and the ability to control multiple aircraft within the same system. Paparazzi features a dynamic flight plan system that is defined by mission states and using way points as “variables”. This makes it easy to create very complex fully automated missions without the operators intervention. For more project information, see here.

The Paparazzi software source and hardware design is distributed without any guarantee. Before flying, please refer to your country's national aviation regulation for Unmanned Aerial Systems, or the one of the country you intend to overfly.

UAV Network Intrusion Detection with Wavelet-based Signature Analysis
This is a first step of a hybrid IDS method based on the analysis of spectral traffic and a robust controller / observer for the estimation of anomalies in UAV networks. This module is currently designed to observe the traffic between the drones and the Paparazzi GCS. It provides a statistic signature of the traffic … Continue reading UAV Network Intrusion Detection with Wavelet-based Signature Analysis
