Online vehicle trajectory reshaping is desired for a class of autonomous air vehicles such as RLVs in order to avoid catastrophic failure when subjected to performance restricting damages and failures. An Adaptive Trajectory Reshaping and Control ATRC system is envisioned that responds to altered vehicle conditions by continuously retargeting and reshaping the reference RLV trajectory satisfying the feasibility constraints. On-line trajectory reshaping to determine a feasible reference trajectory is computationally a difficult problem for real time applications. ATRC is exploring the principles of vehicle dynamics inversion for on-line generation of feasible reference trajectory.
