The development of an artificial vision system to be used in formation flight and aerial refueling is presented. In the former, a camera on the wingman captures leader images, estimating the relative position; in the latter, using probe-and-drogue refueling, the aircraft camera acquires basket images, and from that estimating the relative position. Position estimation is based on infrared markers localization, having a known geometry distribution. Experimental results using a low cost simulated formation flight setup are shown, to validate the procedure.
