Abstract : This research is concerned with developing theory, algorithms. and applications of model -based, closed loop flow control in order to enable robust and agile flight of micro air vehicles, the efforts are centered around the application to integrated closed-loop flow and fight control for stabilization and regulations of separated flows occurring on unmanned and micro air vehicles ( UAV/MAV).
