AbstractAn original approach to application of active control in fighter maneuvering is proposed. This will involve a problem-driven design process tailored to exploit new developments in robust multivariable control theory to serve the needs of real world flight control design. This process emphasizes the formulation of application-specific design requirements as the key to practical implementation of new multivariable synthesis methodologies. Requirements formulation includes the development of new multivariable lower order equivalent systems (MLOES) models for representation of basic requirements and their interface with various multivariable synthesis procedures. These will be used in a process involving directed optimization in which the overall flight control system will be developed as a related suite of multi-loop designs distinguished and integrated by functional modality.
