Abstract : This invention relates to a control augmentation system for stabilization and control of flight vehicles, wherein control of vehicle angular velocities in proportion to control input is effected, and where stabilization of the corresponding vehicle attitude is also effected. The system consists of both feedforward and feedback signal paths. The feedback paths provide augmentation of the vehicle's inherent stability. The feedforward paths augment the controllability factors available to the pilot. The control augmentation system is a solution to hingeless rotor control problems.
