Abstract:

THE RESEARCH COVERED IN THIS REPORT IS A RESULT OF THE TASKS IN THE CONTROL APPLICATION OF MULTIVARIABLE CONTROL THEORY TO AIRCRAFT CONTROL LAWS. THE REPORT IS WRITTEN TO PROVIDE GUIDELINES TO HELP CONTROL LAW DESIGNERS USE MULTIVARIABLE CONTROL THEORY FOR AIRCRAFT CONTROLS. THE REPORT IS ORGANIZED INTO THREE PARTS. THE FIRST INCLUDES DISCUSSIONS ON VARIOUS CONTROL METHODOLOGIES AND PRESENTATION OF FUNDAMENTALS OF CONTROL. THE SECOND DISCUSSES THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF CONTROLS AS IT RELATES TO FIGHTER AIRCRAFT. FINALLY, THE THIRD SECTION GOES THROUGH THE SPECIFICS OF THREE DESIGN METHODOLOGIES USING FIGHTER AIRCRAFT FOR EXAMPLES.
