This paper presents a neural-aided controller that enhances the fault tolerant capabilities of a high performance fighter aircraft during the landing phase when subjected to severe winds and failures such as stuck control surfaces. The neural network scheme herein is called adaptive backstepping neural controller (ABNC). In this study we have combined ABNC along with the classical controller to enhance the failure tolerance of the latter using the feedback error-learning paradigm due to Gomi… CONTINUE READING
