Designing rotorcraft flight control systems to meet the handling qualities and stability margin requirements of Aeronautical Design Standard-33 (ADS-33E-PRF) and MIL-DTL-9490E ensures low-pilot workload, increased mission effectiveness and improved safety of operations in all weather and visibility conditions. The numerous requirements compete with one another and can result in a highly-constrained design space. Therefore, achieving a satisfactory design that makes best use of the limited… CONTINUE READING
