Abstract

The theory of singular perturbations and time scales has played an important role in aircraft performance analysis and in the development of feedback guidance laws for aerospace vehicles. This paper presents a survey of the applications of the theory of singular perturbations and time scales in guidance, navigation, and control of air and space transportation systems. In particular, emphasis will be placed on problem formulation and solution approaches that are useful in applying the theory for various types of problems arising in aerospace systems. Further, the survey embraces the related fields such as fluid dynamics, space structures and space robotics.
