Several sets of conventional roll-pitch-yaw control systems are synthesized for a conventional air-to-ground strike RPV. Linear and bang-bang logics are developed for the inner rate control loops. Outer position control loops and automatic target homing guidance loops are also developed. The control systems are programmed for a digital, real-time simulation implemented on the AMRL PDP-12 Computer of the RPV strike phase. The control system simulator is intended for use as a tool to evaluate the effectiveness of control augmentation for manual piloting of an RPV.
