Abstract

Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (NDI) has been previously reported for application to unmanned aircraft systems, due to the inherent attributes of allowing global co-ordinates to be used directly as control inputs. Here, the paper describes a model implementation of an ACHEON propulsion/thrust vectoring system that can be applied to a range of aircraft, with specific emphasis to thrust vectoring of a UAV. Results from the studies show the overall performance is shown to provide improved stability and dynamic characteristics when augmented with additional classical (PI based) control schemes.
