Susan Frost Receives 2013 NASA Ames Transfer Technology Award for Residual Mode Filters

Susan Frost received a 2013 Patent Application Award from the NASA Ames Technology Partnerships Office for her patent application for residual mode filters.

This patent application is for a disturbance-accommodating model-reference adaptive control law using residual mode filters. Adaptive control algorithms are well-suited to flexible structure applications having unknown modeling parameters and poorly known operating conditions. However, sometimes flexible modes of the application can interfere with the adaptive controller. This patent pending approach enables the filtering of residual modes that might inhibit proper functioning of the adaptive controller.

COLLABORATOR: Mark Balas (formerly of University of Wyoming, now at Embry-Riddle Aeronautics University)

NASA PROGRAM FUNDING: Subsonic Rotary Wing Project, Fundamental Aeronautics Program, Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD)
