Ascent, transition, entry, and abort guidance algorithm design for the X-33 vehicle
Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference and Exhibit
jz/-oY, One of the primary requirements for X-33 is that it be capable of flying autonomously. That is, onboard computers must be capable of commanding the entire flight from launch to landing, including cases where a single engine failure abort occurs. Guidance algorithms meeting these requirements have been tested in simulation and have been coded into prototype flight software. These algorithms must be sufficiently robust to account for vehicle and environmental dispersions, and must issuedoi:10.2514/6.1998-4409 fatcat:gsxcl6jsofhcjhudv7gjaqlfd4
