  abstract =     "This report describes the methodology for using a
                 genetic programming model to develop maneuvering
                 behaviours for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that is
                 also a glider. The use of glider UAVs for surveillance
                 and information-gathering operations has become
                 increasingly important in defense and national security
                 applications. Through an evolutionary process similar
                 to that found in nature, the genetic programming model
                 generates a computer program that when down-loaded onto
                 a glider UAV's on-board computer will guide the vehicle
                 to find regions of lift for staying aloft while
                 accomplishing an information-gathering task. This
                 report discusses various approaches to developing
                 behaviours using genetic programming and presents the
                 results achieved.",
