Abstract:
Emerging advanced controls technology will allow future generation fighter aircraft to aggressively maneuver at high angles-of-attack. Currently there is a need to develop flight-validated design methodologies and guidelines to effectively integrate this technology into future aircraft. As part of the NASA High-Alpha Technology Program (HATP), advanced controls technology is being developed in ground-based research and demonstrated using the High-Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV) as a flying testbed. Efforts are in progress to develop flight validated control law design methodologies and design guidelines which could be used to effectively exploit the capabilities provided by advanced controls at high angles of attack. This paper outlines this research effort and summarizes the design process and preliminary methodologies and guidelines developed to date.
