Flight Control Systems Lab

ENG 164C

Director: Drs. Jeanine Hunter & Long Lu 
Classes served: AE168, AE245, AE246

In our research, the specific interest is concentrated on, but not limited to:

  • (Real-Time) Trajectory Optimization
  • Real-Time Optimal Guidance and Flight Strategies
  • Multivariable Robust Control techniques (such as H-infinity, mu-synthesis, D-K iteration),
  • Time-Delayed systems
  • Orbital Mechanics
  • Attitude Determination and Control

...and their vast application on UAVs, aircrafts and satellites.

The main test bed that has been used heavily in Flight Control Systems and UAV Laboratory is UltraStick 25e.
