Abstract:

The design and performance are described of a flight control system demonstrator. The demon strator illustrates the enhancement in re liability available through the application of redundancy. It consists of a single axis vehicle simulation controlled by a digital, triply redundant, self-adaptive flight controller with suitable displays. Also included is a reli ability analysis of the demonstration system and a handbook form accumulation of information to aid in the effective application of active redundancy. Author
