Automatic Control of Atmospheric and Space Flight Vehicles: Design and Analysis with MATLAB and Simulink / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
AutomaticControl of Atmospheric and Space Flight Vehicles is perhaps the firstbook on the market to present a unified and straightforwardstudyof the design and analysis of automatic control systems for both atmospheric and space flight vehicles.Covering basic control theory and design concepts, it is meantas a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students in moderncourses on flight control systems.
In addition to the basics of flight control, this book covers a number ofupper-level topicsand will therefore be of interest not only to advanced students, but also toresearchers and practitioners in aeronautical engineering, applied mathematics, and systems/control theory.
