Integrated Sensing and Control of Aeroelastic Deformation (ISCAD) Toolbox
An Integrated Sensing and Control of Aeroelastic Deformation (ISCAD) Toolbox is proposed. Specif-ically, this toolbox will provide a methodology, both hardware and software, that serves to compensate for uncommanded de?ections of ?ight systems. This toolbox is meant to augment existing procedures for design of both aircraft and autopilots by providing additional capabilities that address aspects unique to for aeroelastic control. The sensors are provided by the ?ow and loads measuring systems pioneered by Tao Systems while the control synthesis builds upon expertise at the University of Florida in ?exible -wing aeroelasticity. The approach integrates state--of--the -art sensing capability with advanced control synthesis systems. In this way, a collaborative partnership is formed that is ideally suited to develop the ISCAD Toolbox.
