AbstractThe presentation provides a short summary of three areas of work in the Flight Dynamics and Control (FDC) community at NASA Langley after a brief description of the organization at Langley. The details of the Research Directorate, and the two branches in the Research Directorate that conduct FDC research, are shown. The first work area is called “Learn-to-Fly” and is part of the Aerosciences Project in Fundamental Aero Program. The research has as its goal leveraging technologies in system identification and adaptive control to effect very rapid prototyping. The second area involves designing the inner loop and manual flight control for Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser concept and associated test vehicles. The third area describes future development efforts to enhance Langley’s Airborne Subscale Transport Aircraft Research (AirSTAR) capability. The rationale and path forward for enabling beyond-visual-range testing is described. The motivation is to enable post stall and departure testing for typical regional transport configurations.
