Abstract

A digital flight control system based on microprocessor technology has been designed, developed, and flight tested in Princeton's Variable-Response Research Aircraft (VRA). The Micro-DFCS works in conjunction with the VRA's existing fly-by-wire control system, and it is programmed to provide command and stability augmentation control laws formulated through modern control theory. The Model 1 Micro-DFCS hardware and software are described and initial flight test results are presented.
