FCSDT (Flight Control System Design Toolkit)

FCSDT has two main capabilities:

The first function is to design the FCS itself while the second function is to perform some analyses which affect design of other sub-spaces in the aircraft design space.

The following is a list of FCSDT functionalities in design and analysis.

  • FCS architecture design
  • Reliability analysis
  • Failure mode study
  • Control allocation
  • Response simulation
  • Stability and control analysis
  • Handling quality assessment
  • Control laws design
  • Control laws definition
  • Flight simulation


These functionalities are performed by five modules or sub-codes which form FCSDT.
