Advanced Flight Controls for Ultra-agile Small Unmanned Air Vehicles
The proposed research will explore innovative flight control methodologies combining recent advances in system identification, novel flight sensors, and neural network based adaptive flight control design to develop a new, high bandwidth flight controller architecture capable of rejecting the disturbing effects of wind gusts and turbulence. The proposed controller architecture will be most appropriate for small rotary-wing VTOL UAVs weighing less than about 70 kg (150 lbs.) and having a hover flight mode in which the rotor(s) primarily produce a lifting force and a forward flight mode where the rotor(s) primarily produce a thrust force.
