Joshua Harris (B.S. Texas A&M University) successfully defended his Master of Science Thesis titled “Nonlinear Adaptive Dynamic Inversion Control for Variable Stability Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems”. Harris’s work provides a unique resource to the aerospace community and serves as a holistic review of aircraft modeling and its applications to flight control research. However, the main contributions of his work comes in the form of introducing nonlinear adaptive control laws which are then applied to a Command Augmentation System (CAS) and simulating a variety of variable stability in-flight controller designs. Harris has already accepted a position as a Software Engineer with the Flight Control/VMS Group at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Fort Worth, TX. Congratulations Josh! We are all extremely proud of you and your accomplishments and we look forward to seeing all the great work you will do in the future.
