Optimized and Robust Design Techniques for Hypersonic Vehicle Control
Technical point of contact: David Kozlowski and Alex Roesler (Sandia National Laboratories)
Period of activity: 2018-2020
Overview of the Project
This project will develop algorithms for online learning that are suitable for the control of autonomous systems with limited modeling information. The resulting algorithms will utilize multiple sources of information most notably including the run-time data and a priori insights on the underlying physics of the system. The team will, at times, specialize these algorithms to the autonomous control of hypersonic aircraft.
