INTRODUCTION Following the start of the World Health Organization (WHO) Programme for International Drug Monitoring (PIDM) by 10 member countries in 1968, it took another 24 years for the first two African countries to join in 1992, by which time the number of member countries in the PIDM had grown to 33. Whilst pharmacovigilance (PV), including the(More)
The ability of backstepping controllers to deal with nonlinearities make this technique a suitable candidate for the control of small fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The authors have already proposed a comprehensive approach combining backstepping with PID controllers for simultaneous longitudinal and latero-directional control of fixed-wing(More)
Backstepping is one of the most promising advanced control laws developed for xed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Its nonlinearity combined with adaptation guarantees adequate performance over the whole ight envelope even when the aircraft model is not exact. In the literature, there are several attempts to apply a backstepping controller to aspects(More)
W ing rock is an oscillatory ro lling motion which arises at high angles of attack in aircraft with highly-swept wings. In the present paper, a method to suppress wing rock through sliding mode control is proposed. Sliding mode control is designed to min imize together roll angle error and command input through a cost function. The procedure is performed on(More)
