A numerical algorithm for computing necessary conditions for performance speciications is developed for nonlinear uncertain systems. The algorithm is similar in nature and behavior to the power algorithm for the lower bound, and doesn't rely on a descent method. The algorithm is applied to a practical example.
This article discusses the use of decentralized model predictive control to manage a set of related combat tasks (e.g., the destruction of anti-aerial defenses in a given geographical area by a wing of uninhabited air vehicles (UAVs)). The controller is meant to operate autonomously as it attempts to manage conditions in which success in all its objectives… (More)
A recently developed algorithm for nonlinear system performance analysis has been applied to an F16 aircraft to begin evaluating the suitability of the method for aerospace problems. The algorithm has a potential to be much more e cient than the current methods in performance analysis for aircraft. This paper is the initial step in evaluating this potential.
