Abstract:

The problem of designing flight control systems for high performance tailless fighter aircraft is discussed in the report. The research uses linear matrix inequalities and semidefinite programming to addresses three areas of tailless fighter flight control. The first area investigates H2 and Hinf controller design using linear matrix inequalities. The second area uses linear matrix inequalities and linear parameter varying models to develop stability analysis tools for gain scheduled and reconfigurable control laws. The third area focused on using linear matrix inequalities to design aeroservoelastic fitters.
