Robust quasi NID aircraft 3D flight control under sensor noise. (English) Zbl 1274.93094

Summary: In the paper, the design of an aircraft motion controller based on the dynamic contraction method is presented. The control task is formulated as a tracking problem for Euler angles, where the desired decoupled output transients are accomplished under assumption of high-level, high-frequency sensor noise and incomplete information about varying parameters of the system and external disturbances. The resulting controller has a simple form of a combination of a low-order linear dynamical system and a matrix whose entries depend nonlinearly on certain measurable flight variables.
