This paper presents an adaptive control approach for flutter suppression of a performance adaptive aeroelastic wing equipped with a variable camber continuous trailing edge flap design. The adaptive control approach is based on the optimal control modification method augmented to a linear quadratic gaussian optimal control design. A model reduction based on a singular perturbation approach is presented. The control surfaces are subject to relative motion constraints due to the elastomer

Simulation results indicate that the adaptive augmentation control design is effective in suppressing unstable aeroelastic modes.
