Turn-Key Approach to Optimal Control via Differential Inclusion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Hans Seywald
Award Amount: $599,702.00
Abstract:
Recently, a new method for trajectory optimization was introduced based on the concepts of differential inclusion and attainable sets. This approach eliminates the control from the problem formulation, and exhibits robust convergence even for singular control problems. It thus shows great potential… More
