Abstract

Command Augmentation Systems (CAS) are a common part of modern airplane control and are best characterized as a form of tracking control. Pilot commands communicated through stick, pedal and throttle commands are translated into desired states for the airplane and the CAS through a close loop configuration with the airplane work to minimize the difference between the actual state of the plane and the desired state as communicated from the pilot. In the research reported, simulated stick x commands were translated into desired roll rates for a simulated airplane. Using dual heuristic programming, a form of eurodynamic programming (a.k.a adaptive critic methods and reinforcement learning), a CAS was designed. The resultant CAS shows effective tracking response between the desired and actual roll rate of the airplane.
