Abstract:

The advent of high performance aircraft has placed more dependence on automatic flight control functions. Because of this the control system is required to not only be highly reliable but also fail operational to provide maximum safety-of-flight capability. The major impact of these reliability and safety requirements on flight control development is that redundancy will definitely be required for advanced high performance vehicles because it is the only means of obtaining fail operational performance. Design techniques are presented which can be used toward developing completely fail safe aerospace vehicles. Author
