BAE SYSTEMS Controls Develops Autopilot for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Using MathWorks Tools  
Using MathWorks tools, engineers at BAE SYSTEMS Controls in Johnson City, New York, and Santa Monica, California, developed and successfully flight tested a UAV flight avionics system and ground control station in just eight months. The tools enabled the geographically separated teams to design, model, and analyze the control system, simulate the UAV, visualize the simulation data, perform testing, and automatically generate the autopilot code, all in a single, model-based design environment.

CARCO Electronics Reduces Development Costs by 30% Using MathWorks Simulation Tools  
CARCO Electronics used MathWorks products to design and manufacture a six-degrees-of-freedom motion test system that could operate at frequencies of 1,000 Hz. MathWorks products saved CARCO time and money by enabling them to simulate the behavior of the controller and the mechanical system together and then optimize the control system before building a costly prototype.
