Abstract

Eigenspace assignment methods are used to design a feedback system for use in precise hovering control for a modern attack helicopter. Eigenvalue placement is used for stability enhancement and eigenvector shaping is used for modal decoupling. Good closed loop transient response and transfer functions are obtained.
