Abstract : The invention provides an adaptive control system for tailoring command or reference signals proportionally to available control actuator and sensor instrument acceleration rate and position capabilities. The invention can be used in a variety of applications, however, it has been developed and demonstrated in conjunction with guided missile airframe attitude control. In the guided missile applications wherein error signals are generated by comparing seeker attitude guidance or reference command signals with achieved attitude and control actuator deflection signals, the invention provides a means for generating adaptive control signals for tailoring the gain of the required command signals so that the capabilities of the control actuator, airframe and sensors are not exceeded.
