Trajectory optimization and guidance law development for NASP applications
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1988)
Adaptive Control of Evolving Gossamer Structures
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-08)
A solar sail is an example of a gossamer structure that is proposed as an propulsion system for future space missions. Since it is a large scale flexible structure that requires a long time for its deployment, active ...
Real-Time Vision-Based Relative Aircraft Navigation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-03)
This paper describes two vision-based techniques for the navigation of an aircraft relative to an airborne target using only information from a single camera fixed to the aircraft. These techniques are motivated by ...
Reduced Order Guidance Methods and Probabilistic Techniques in Addressing Mission Uncertainty
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996-09)
Recognizing that vehicle synthesis fulfills the role of integrator of the mutually interacting disciplines, difficulties persist in intelligently implementing disciplinary analysis into this synthesis process. This paper ...
Generating Dynamic Models Including Uncertainty for Use in Aircraft Conceptual Design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1997-08)
Accurate stability and control derivative information is essential to the configuration designer. As new, non-conventional aircraft are being designed, however, the trusted stability and control estimates usually used in ...
Fault tolerant nonliner adaptive flight control for the X-33
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-07-14)
Nonlinear flight control for tilt-rotor aircraft operating in the terminal area
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
Singular perturbation analysis of AOTV related trajectory optimization problems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1986)
Adaptive Control for a Microgravity Vibration Isolation System
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
Most active vibration isolation systems that try to a provide quiescent acceleration environment for space-science experiments have utilized linear design methods. In this report, we address adaptive control augmentation of ...
Augmenting Adaptive Approach to Control of Flexible Systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004)
This paper describes an approach for augmenting a linear controller design with a neural-network-based adaptive element. The basic approach involves formulating an architecture for which the associated error equations have ...
