The mission of the MichiganAFRL Collaborative Center in Control Science MACCCS was to establish, sustain and amplify an internationally recognized center of excellence in control science research and education, through interaction between the faculty and students at the participating universities, and AFRL. Concentration areas were 1. Cooperative Control of Unmanned Air Vehicles C2UAV i design, modeling, analysis and control of flapping wing vehicles for collaborative UAV missions ii supervision and control of cooperative heterogeneous systems iii distributed, dynamic, sequential, combinatorial andor stochastic mission planning and iv path planning and flight control to achieve autonomy in contested environments. 2. Air-Breathing Hypersonic Vehicles ABHV i development of simple low-order models that characterize the main aerothermoelastic effects coupled with propulsion ii vehicle configuration to improve dynamic controllability without compromising performance iii operability limits, controllability and uncertainty input to an adaptive control model of hypersonic vehicles and iv adaptive control of hypersonic vehicles.
