The observation that bone mineral is lost in patients who are either immobilized or remain in bed for extended periods of time formed the basis for the concern that large amounts of bone mineral may be lost during long periods of weightlessness. This concern was magnified when early X-ray densitometry studies suggested that rather large amounts of mineral… (More)
This paper presents a novel methodology for a control of aircraft using spatially distributed surface pressure sensors namely, flush air data sensors (FADS). The methodology combines the advantages derived from robustness properties of passivity-based control theory with richness of sensory information obtained from judiciously distributed network of highly… (More)
