This chapter presents an overview of linear flight control and guidance methods for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The chapter begins with a discussion of rotation matrices and kinematic equations of a UAV. The six degree of freedom UAV equations of motion are also derived using rigid-body dynamics principles. The equations of motion are then linearized, and several linear multi-loop closure techniques for UAV guidance and control are discussed.
