Abstract : This document summarizes results of objective studies to research, develop and evaluate concepts and state-of-the-art technology in the area of advanced flight controllers for aerospace vehicles. Studies were centered upon concepts which promised applicability to VTOL aircraft, with special attention devoted to sidearm controllers. The general conclusion is that evolutionary improvement to existing controller configurations promises greater overall acceptance and technological success than do revolutionary concepts. An extensive bibliography is provided in the Appendices.
