In this paper nonlinear adaptive flight control laws based on the backstepping approach are proposed which are applicable to over-actuated nonlinear systems. Instead of solving the control allocation exactly, update laws for the desired control effector signals are defined such that they converge to the optimal solution. Stability and...

A new adaptive nonlinear flight controller is designed for a high fidelity, six degrees of freedom F-16 model for the entire flight envelope. The design is based on a modular approach which separates the design of the control law and the online identifier. The control law design is based on backstepping with nonlinear damping terms to robustify...

In this paper a theoretical framework for nonlinear adaptive flight control is developed and applied to a simplified, over-actuated nonlinear fighter aircraft model. The framework is based on a modular adaptive backstepping scheme with a new type of nonlinear estimator. The nonlinear estimator is constructed using an invariant manifold based...
