Short Courses on Flight Control and Accidents

AHS Short Course

Short Course on Rotorcraft Flight Dynamics Model Identification and Flight Control Design using CIFER® and CONDUIT®

Monday, May 4, 2015 - 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Presented by Dr. Mark B. Tischler, US Army Aviation Development Directorate

This course will cover practical methods and applications of system identification methods to determine and validate flight dynamics models of rotorcraft from flight test and simulation data. It will also cover practical flight control design and optimization methods to meet modern handling-qualities and flight control specifications. Many flight application examples based on the instructor's broad experience base will be presented throughout the course to demonstrate the methods and results.
