Unanticipated and unknown changes in an aircraft's aerodynamic stability derivatives may cause undesirable effects that render pre-designed control laws unsuitable for maintaining stability. Gradual changes in the stability derivatives may be due to icing on lifting surfaces, whereas structural damage may cause a sudden change. For this study, we use the(More)
— We use retrospective cost adaptive control (RCAC) with a constant forgetting factor (CFF), variable forgetting factor (VFF), and Kalman Filter (KF) to control a planar missile with nonlinear dynamics and aerodynamics. RCAC/CFF, RCAC/VFF, and RCAC/KF are used within an inner-loop/outer-loop control architecture, where the normal acceleration command is(More)
