Flight controllers were developed for the F-16 VISTA aircraft using classical PID control design methods in addition to H∞ and linear parameter varying (LPV) robust design methods. Desktop analysis and simulation were used to quantitatively assess and compare the performance of each controller. A piloted simulation study was performed to gather qualitative pilot ratings and comments to validate or refute the results and conclusions which were based on the preliminary desktop analysis. Pilot-vehicle describing functions and wavelet analysis techniques were also used to analyze the flight test data gathered during the simulation as a supplement to the quantitative analysis data.
