    This paper describes a new guidance law that extends the pursuit guidance law previously developed by Park et. al. Several improvements are presented that allow operation in the real world. A stability analysis accounts for the dynamic response of the bank angle commands which leads to the definition of regions of instability. Another extension accounts for situations where the pursuit aim point i... View full abstract»

  • Capturability of Augmented Proportional Navigation (APN) guidance with nonlinear engagement dynamics

    Proportional Navigation (PN) and its variants are widely used guidance philosophies. However, in the presence of target maneuver, PN guidance law is effective only for a restrictive set of initial geometries. To account for target maneuvers, the concept of Augmented Proportional Navigation (APN) guidance law was introduced and analyzed in a linearized interceptor-target engagement framework presen...

  • Lyapunov-based robust adaptive control of a quadrotor UAV in the presence of modeling uncertainties

    This paper presents the development of a robust adaptive controller for the dynamics of a quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the presence of linear-in-the-parameter uncertainties and bounded exogenous disturbances. The controller is designed to asymptotically track a desired position and yaw angle trajectory via a modular adaptive update law and a robust integral sign of the error (RISE) f...

  • Adaptive PPN guidance law with impact angle constraint

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):19 - 24
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (427 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this work, two adaptive guidance law which achieve the specified impact angle are proposed. The first one is based on the conventional PPN guidance law, while the second one is inspired by controlling the turn rate of relative velocity. Since in both cases the analytical solutions of relative angles between target and missile velocity vectors are found, the proposed guidance laws do not require... View full abstract»

  • Toward energy-optimizing rotary wing MAV formations

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):25 - 30
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (761 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A bio-inspired energy-optimizing control methodology for a formation of rotary-wing Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) is proposed. The key idea is that the recirculating airflow induced by each vehicle can be used to provide an upward airflow to a neighbor in the formation. The recirculating airflow around each vehicle is modeled using a doublet field, and the effects of recirculation on each vehicle in t... View full abstract»

    Terminal impact angle control is crucial for enhancement of warhead effectiveness. In the literature, this problem has been addressed in the context of targets with lower speeds than the interceptor. However, in the current defence scenario, targets of much higher speed than the interceptor is a reality. This paper presents a generic proportional navigation (PN) based guidance law, that uses the s... View full abstract»

  • Controller synthesis for piecewise-affine time-delay slab systems based on invariant sets: An LMI approach

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):37 - 42
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (181 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper presents a controller synthesis method to stabilize piecewise-affine (PWA) time-delay slab systems. Based on invariant set ideas and using Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals sufficient conditions for exponential stability will be proposed. The resulting conditions are cast as a set of Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) which can be efficiently solved. A numerical example demonstrates the ef... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates exponential stabilization of a dual-rate linear control system using a switched system approach. Taking into consideration different sampling periods of various sensors, the state variables of the linear system are classified as two categories and each category is paired with a sampling period. Based on whether the sampling information about two categories of state variable... View full abstract»

    This paper investigates the exponential stability in L2norm of scalar nonlinear hyperbolic systems of balance laws with the reaction that may be accumulative or dissipative. Two Lyapunov-based stability criteria that depend on the system parameters and boundary data are proposed with fully considering the reactions' characteristics. The new results can help to construct a common Lyaunov... View full abstract»

    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (275 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper addresses the problem of decentralized state estimation in formations of vehicles with time-varying topologies. The proposed solution relies on the implementation of a local state observer on-board each vehicle, based only on local sensing capabilities and limited communication with neighboring vehicles, to estimate its state. The effects of changes in the formation topology over time a... View full abstract»
