Agility metric robustness using linear error theory Conference Paper uri icon


  • 1999 by David Smith and John Valasek. The robustness of agility metrics has been studied to determine the sensitivity of selected metrics to variations in initial conditions and uncertainties in physical characteristics, and coefficients. The selected metrics are time to roll through bank angle metric, average pitch rate metric, power onset/loss parameter, and Combat Cycle Time metric. Each metric was evaluated with initial condition errors and parametric uncertainties of physical constants using linear error theory to validate the use of linear approximations to propagate the errors.
