LPVTools is a MATLAB toolbox that is being developed to perform gain-scheduled Linear Parameter-Varying (LPV) control of aeroservoelastic systems. This paper outlines the LPV modeling, analysis and controller synthesis features of this toolbox. The features of the toolbox are illustrated by an application example, where a grid-based LPV model is developed for the X-56A aircraft using LPVTools. The X-56A Multi Utility Technology Testbed, funded by the US Air Force and designed by Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works, is a modular uninhabited aircraft designed to test active flutter suppression and gust load al- leviation algorithms. The X-56A example shown in this paper demonstrates how LPVTools can be used to develop LPV gain scheduled controllers for a aeroservoelastic systems.
