About the Book
This Monograph is a fascinating account of the journey made by Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), Bengaluru from its first analog automatic flight control system for an air launched drone (1974) to sophisticated digital Flight Control System (FCS) for the fly-by-wire supersonic fighter (2001) and to the autonomous low-level cruise platform (2013). Distinguishing features of this Monograph include the documentation of 'projects experience’, inclusion of technical essays by domain experts and annotation of the contents of important references. A great deal of the technology described is a compilation of the work done by two generations of scientists and engineers at ADE and other co-operating institutions. The authors who have been active participants in these development projects hope that this Monograph would help the future entrants to flight control research and development programmes to adapt themselves to their roles more easily.
