Abstract
A single Fuzzy Logic (FL) design will be able to control an interceptor throughout its entire flight. The robustness of FL controllers will prove to provide adequate control during continuously varying aerodynamic conditions. FL is a completely model-independent linguistic-rule-based control methodology suited for nonlinear, ill-defined, or time variant real world problems. Applications might include: a six degree-of-freedom controller for spacecraft operations; control of an inflight aircraft optimization; train systems; and automotive components. The rule-based control features of FL may make astoundingly successful difference in such applications as guidance, pattern recognition, terrain mapping, vibration suppression, radar tracking controller, throttleable propulsion control, gimbaled seeking positioning, and servo control.
