Abstract

This paper considers application of adaptive controller to multi-input multi-output open loop unstable unmanned military aircraft. The control is designed to accommodate and to be robust to actuator failures as well as to pitch break uncertainty, which is used to model uncertain aerodynamics. Results of using the adaptive controller are compared with the conventional model reference adaptive control scheme to show improved transient command tracking as well as guaranteed time-delay margin.
