Abstract : The workshop was organized and conducted by the Control Techniques Group, Flight Control Division, Flight Dynamics Laboratory, as part of an ongoing effort in flight control specification/criteria development. The workshop focused on the results of applying multivariable control techniques to the development of flight control systems for present day aircraft. This report contains condensed versions of the five papers presented at the workshop: (1) Multivariable Control Laws for the AFTI/F-16, (2) Design of a Complete Multivariable Digital Flight Control System, (3)Digital Multivariable Tracker Control Laws for the C-141-A Starlifter Aircraft; (4) High-Gain Error Actuated Flight Control Systems for Continuous Linear Multivariable Plants, and (5) Reconfigurable Digital Control Laws for the A-7D DIGITAC II Aircraft With Failed Primary Control Surfaces.
