Abstract

This section presents the design of a full envelope flight control system for a modified F-18 aircraft. The purpose of the design is to take advantage of advanced linear control design techniques while addressing practical implementation issues. A description of the aircraft model is presented, followed by detailed descriptions of the flight control system design and analysis. The specific numbers used in the design are indicated in Appendix 5.
