An approach to close-formation flight of autonomous aircraft was developed. A standard LQ-based structure was synthesized for each vehicle and for formation position error control using linearized equations of motion and a lifting line model of the aircraft wake. The resultant approach provides optimal path information sequencing in the nominal case, as well as the redundancy needed to accommodate failures in data transmission and reception.

Abstract

An approach to close-formation flight of autonomous aircraft was developed. A standard LQ-based structure was synthesized for each vehicle and for formation position error control using linearized equations of motion and a lifting line model of the aircraft wake. The resultant approach provides optimal path information sequencing in the nominal case, as well as the redundancy needed to accommodate failures in data transmission and reception.
