Abstract: The feedback gains in state-of-the-art flight control laws for commercial aircraft are scheduled as a function of values such as airspeed, mass, and centre of gravity. If estimates of these are lost due to multiple simultaneous sensor failures, it is necessary for the pilot to either directly command control surface positions, or to revert to an alternative control law. This work develops a robust backup load-factor tracking control law, that does not depend on these parameters, based on application of theory from robust MPC and H2 control. First the methods are applied with loss only of airdata, and subsequently also with loss of mass and CoG estimates. Local linear analysis indicates satisfactory performance over a wide range of operating points. Finally, the resulting control laws are demonstrated on the nonlinear RECONFIGURE benchmark, which is derived from Airbus's high delity, industrially-validated simulator, OSMA.
