This book provides readers with a design approach to the automatic flight control systems (AFCS). The AFCS is the primary on-board tool for long flight operations, and is the foundation for the airspace modernization initiatives. In this text, AFCS and autopilot are employed interchangeably. It presents fundamentals of AFCS/autopilot, including primary subsystems, dynamic modeling, AFCS categories/functions/modes, servos/actuators, measurement devices, requirements, functional block diagrams, design techniques, and control laws. The book consists of six chapters. The first two chapters cover the fundamentals of AFCS and closed-loop control systems in manned and unmanned aircraft. The last four chapters present features of Attitude control systems (Hold functions), Flight path control systems (Navigation functions), Stability augmentation systems, and Command augmentation systems, respectively.

The history of flight control is inseparably associated to the history of aviation itself. Since the early period, the concept of automatic flight control systems has progressed from mechanical control systems to highly advanced automatic fly-by-wire flight control systems which can be found nowadays in military jets and civil airliners. A conventional fixed-wing aircraft flight control system consists of flight control surfaces, the respective cockpit controls, connecting linkages, and the necessary operating mechanisms to control an aircraft's direction in flight. Aircraft engine controls are also considered as flight controls as they change speed. An autopilot is a system used to control the trajectory of a vehicle without constant 'hands-on' control by a human operator being required. Autopilots do not replace a human operator, but assist them in controlling the vehicle, allowing them to focus on broader aspects of operation, such as monitoring the trajectory, weather and systems. Autopilots are used in aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, and others. Autopilots have evolved significantly over time, from early autopilots that merely held an attitude to modern autopilots capable of performing automated landings under the supervision of a pilot. The autopilot in a modern large aircraft typically reads its position and the aircraft's attitude from an inertial guidance system. Automatic Flight Control Systems - Latest Developments emphases on a selection of significant research areas, such as inertial navigation, control of unmanned aircraft and helicopters, trajectory control of an unmanned space re-entry vehicle, aeroservoelastic control, adaptive flight control, and fault tolerant flight control.

The history of flight control cannot be considered separately to the history of aviation. Since the early days, the conception of automatic flight control systems has advanced from mechanical control systems to greatly developed automatic fly-by-wire flight control systems which can be found in military jets and civil airliners these days. Even today, several research attempts are made for the further advancement of these flight control systems in numerous aspects. Current advancements in this area target a variety of different aspects. This book presents a collection of knowledge on important research areas, like inertial navigation, handling of unmanned airplanes and helicopters, trajectory control of an unmanned space re-entry automobile, aeroservoelastic control, modifying flight control, and error tolerant flight control. It discusses theoretical outlook and current conceptual advancements in flight control systems along with describing theories of modified and fault-tolerant flight control systems. Each technique has been elaborated using illustrations and appropriate examples.
