Purpose and goal
The project´s main objective was to develop and adapt nonlinear control methods for envelope protection in flight applications. The project has identified and developed some methods that have been found particularly suitable. These have been implemented and evaluated in Saab flight simulators.
Results and expected effects
The expected benefit for Saab has been met by a method now implemented and tested in flight tests. The benefits of participating universities has been to establish international research in this area that did not previously exist at this institution. In addition, new partnerships with other universities have been developed.
Approach and implementation
The project organization has been successful. That the research has been conducted by an industry-employed PhD student has meant that the industry had been able to effect the direction of the research such that it have contributed to the benefit of the industry. The collaboration between the university and industry has passed on very well. Much thanks to previously good relations between the parties. The actual implementation in the form of work packages did not suit the way the research was conducted. therefore some adaptation had to be done.
