Abstract

Future reusable launch vehicles must be designed to fly a wide spectrum of missions and survive numerous types of failures. The X-33 Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstrator is used as a simulation platform for testing a neural network-based model-reference adaptive controller and comparing it to a gain scheduled controller in the case of a mission undergoing an engine-out abort scenario. The adaptive controller is able to perform nearly as well as a gain-scheduled controller, and suggestions are made for further improvements.
