Realtime Pilot Model Parameter Identification.

Pagination or Media Count:
An air to ground test technique was simulated on the Flight Dynamics Laboratorys LAMARS simulation system. Data was recorded on longitudinal stick deflection and longitudinal pipper errors. The data was used to identify pilot model parameters using the Recursive Least Squares RLS Algorithm. Several different pilot models and discretization techniques are used to determine which method is best suited to this task. Neal-Smith Theory is used to predict a range of pilot model parameters are identified using three aircraft with different time delays. THe identified pilot model parameters and pilot ratings are compared to see if a correlation exist. The specific values of pilot model parameters predicted by Neal-Smith Theory were not identified. However, trends in the pilot model parameters predicted by Neal-Smith Theory, for aircraft of increasing time delay, can be observed in the identifications.
