An advanced flight midcourse guidance law based on genetic algorithm (GA) is proposed. The proposed midcourse guidance formulation minimizes the flight time and maximizes the terminal energy subject to a terminal intercept condition. GA is used to search the optimal attack angle for the flight trajectory. By combining GA and singular perturbation technique(More)
This paper describes an adaptive control approach of three‐dimensional (3D) nonlinear path following for a fix‐wing micro aerial vehicle (MAV) with wind disturbances in complicated terrain. We derive the control laws of course and flight path angle by the constructed Lyapunov function applying vector field theory based on the error equations in the(More)
Maintenance of high performance formation control is important for low Earth orbit (LEO) formation missions of small spacecraft. In this paper, a model of nonlinear relative motion dynamics is built, and then nonlinear and important perturbations affecting the formation configuration, such as J 2 and atmospheric drag, are analyzed as disturbances.
