Nonlinear Control of a Airbreathing Hypersonic Vehicle: A Backstepping Approach

Nowadays, airbreathing vehicle's control represents a very motivating challenge, as it includes the respect of some physical constraints, hard nonlinearities in thrust operation, and also a non minimum phase behavior due to fins' size. In this paper we describe methods for simultaneous guidance and control nonlinear laws design relying on Lyapunov functions theory. Some simulation are presented, based on a realistic modelling of such a vehicle.
