Evolutionary design of robust flight control for a hypersonic aircraft

  title={Evolutionary design of robust flight control for a hypersonic aircraft},
  author={Kevin J. Austin},
An evolutionary design approach is used to construct an auto pilo for a hypersonic airbreathing aircraft. Flight control for this class of vehicl e is an extremely challenging problem due to the combination of nonlinear dynamics, param etric uncertainty and complex constraints. Consequently, simultaneous control ove r th flight path, aerodynamic attitude and propulsion is required. This thesis develops and applies a design procedure which ca n explicitly address the challenges of hypersonic… CONTINUE READING
