Control laws for the X-31A with reduced vertical tail (VECTOR)
Control laws for the X-31A with reduced vertical tail (VECTOR) Control laws for the X-31A with reduced vertical tail (VECTOR) In the frame of the project VECTOR (Vectoring, Extremely short take-off and landing, Control, Tailless Operations Research) we studied flying qualities of reduced vertical tail configurations for the thrust-vectored X-31A experimental aircraft. The use of the Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion methodology allowed us to automatically generate control laws from the aircraft model implemented in Modelica, thus minimising effort for adapting control laws as a function of the tail size. The control laws were successfully evaluated in the flight simulator.
