The general goal of this research effort was to design and develop a novel biologically inspired framework for flight envelope estimation and protection, which is conceptually integrated with the abnormal detection and accommodation processes and is general and comprehensive such that it can operate at all conditions, normal and abnormal, a priori known or unknown. Two major methodologies have been proposed and investigated one based on a dendritic cell mechanism and one on structuring of the selfnon-self. Data for development and demonstration has been obtained from the WVU motion-based flight simulator for a supersonic fighter aircraft. Results show promising capabilities of the artificial immune system paradigm for providing an integrated and comprehensive solution to the problem of aircraft abnormal condition detection, identification, evaluation, and accommodation.
