Abstract

Manual flight control system design for fighter aircraft continues to be one of the most demanding problems in the world of automatic control. It is the job of the manual flight control system to provide a satisfactory dynamic response to pilot inputs. The problem is inherently multivariable, that is, a controller must drive multiple effectors based on information from multiple sensor and command inputs. Modern fighter aircraft dynamics generally have highly coupled dynamics that are both uncertain and nonlinear.
