Abstract

A ramjet propelled lifting vehicle is considered as a test bed for research in the hypersonic flight regime. A robust control system is designed for achieving adequate stability and damping characteristics. Realistic effects such as controller dead time and control surface rate limitations which are of particular concern for a configuration with inherent instability are also considered. Due to the specific flight test profile of the vehicle, the transition from powered to unpowered flight as well as engine flame out effects are addressed.
