Tutorial Presentation on MPC for Aircraft

Thank you to Pantelis Sopasakis from IMT Lucca for inviting me to participate in a tutorial session on Model Predictive Control for Aerospace at the European Control Conference in Linz, Austria.  Presentation topics ranged from spacecraft rendezvous to UAV guidance.  I limited my talk to fixed-wing aircraft, but covered three different case studies:

  • Nonlinear MPC for a UAV avoiding oncoming aircraft
  • Mixed-integer linear MPC for an aircraft flying in a forest
  • Mxed-integer linear MPC for air traffic flow
