Advances in Aeronautical Systems shows that real-time simulation of aeronautical systems is fundamental in the analysis, design, and testing of today's increasingly complex aeronautical systems. Perhaps more important is the fact that simulation, including 3-D vision and motion simulation techniques, is an essential element in pilot training for both commercial and military aircraft. An essential characteristic of all modern aeronautical systems is their avionics system, which is composed of many elements, in particular sensor systems. This book comprises eight chapters, with the first focusing on aircraft automatic flight control system with model inversion. The following chapters then discuss information systems for supporting design of complex human-machine systems and formulation of a minimum variance deconvolution technique for compensation of pneumatic distortion in pressure-sensing devices. Other chapters cover synthesis and validation of feedback guidance laws for air-to-air interceptions; multistep matrix integrators for real-time simulation; the role of image interpretation in tracking and guidance; continuous time parameter estimation: analysis via a limiting ordinary differential equation; and in-flight alignment of inertial navigation systems. This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of engineering and aeronautics.
