In this work a guidance and control system for an a powered ram air parafoil under wind disturbance is considered. After analyzing a 6 Dof and 9 Dof nonlinear dynamic models of the parafoil, wind effect is added to them. In order to actively respond to the wind acting on the transverse direction of the vehicle a new guidance algorithm is proposed. After a Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulation (HILS) study, flight tests are performed to demonstrate its potential under wind disturbances.
