Advanced Control of Aircraft, Spacecraft and Rockets

Advanced Control of Aircraft, Spacecraft and Rockets

Written for students and engineers, this book introduces the concepts of modern control theory applied to the design and analysis of general flight control systems. The book presents both atmospheric and space flight control systems, including aircraft, rockets (missiles and launch vehicles), entry vehicles, and spacecraft (both orbital and attitude control). Topics include control systems, linear tracking systems, cross-product steering, and optimal control techniques.

MATLAB is introduced and used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
