    Advanced aircraft such as control configured vehicles (CCV) provide the capability for implementing multimode control laws, which allow the aircraft performance to be tailored to match the characteristics of a specific task or mission. This is accomplished by generating decoupled aircraft motions, which can be used to improve aircraft effectiveness. In this article, we describe a task-tailored mul... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an approach to the automatic redesign of flight control systems for aircraft that have suffered one or more control element failures. The procedure is based on linear quadratic (LQ) design techniques, and produces a control system that maximizes a measure of feedback system performance subject to a bandwidth constraint.

    This paper describes the development of a high-performance microprocessor-based system for control of automotive emissions and fuel economy. The result is a two-chip system consisting of a VLSI single-chip 16-bit microprocessor with an integral analog-to-digital (A/D) converter and precision timing circuits, and a companion memory chip with a combination of read only memory (ROM) and random access...

    This paper describes a laboratory experiment, referred to as the Beam Control Experiment (BCE), which has the essential features of a large flexible structure. The experiment is used to develop and evaluate identification and control algorithms that look promising in the active control of large space structures with high performance pointing and stability requirements. Some results on the maximum ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (391 KB)

    The paper describes a method for implementing direct-digital-control (DDC) algorithms on readily available microcomputers using distributed arithmetic. With the use of distributed arithmetic, fast execution of the control program can be achieved on 8-bit microcomputers without loss of precision. A position control system for a DC servomotor is described to illustrate the distributed arithmetic tec... View full abstract»

  • Geometric illustration of the Kalman filter gain and covariance update algorithms

    The Kalman filter gain and covariance update algorithms are illustrated geometrically for a low dimensional system. The illustrations give an intuitive understanding of the basic filtering process and advocate a more "natural" form of the covariance update algorithm. View full abstract»
