High Fidelity Simulation of a Nonlinear Aircraft Conference Paper uri icon

This paper presents the development and verification of a high fidelity, nonlinear simulation of a high performance aircraft. The exact aircraft modeled is the Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter. The motivation behind the development of this simulation is to validate controller performance for various nonlinear control approaches. However, this simulation is extensible to many other applications such as handling qualities and human factors re- search. It can also be integrated into a real-time ight simulator environment or used to test other controllers. The simulation can also be extended to model aircraft other than the F-5A.
