A modular flight control system is developed for a tailless fighter aircraft with innovative control effectors. Dynamic inversion control synthesis is used to develop a full envelope flight control law. Minor dynamic inversion command variable revisions are required due to the tailless nature of the configuration studied to achieve nominal stability and performance. Structured singular value and simulation analysis shows that robust stability is achieved and robust performance is slightly deficient due to modeling errors. A multi-branch linear programming based method is developed and used for allocation of redundant limited control effectors.
