The State Rate Feedback Implicit Model Follower control concept is examined in detail from a classical and modern control theory viewpoint. State Rate Feedback Implicit Model Following (SRFIMF) is a concept whereby control of the dynamic response of a system is achieved by the measurement and feedback of a state rate, normally acceleration. In addition to a basic description of the concept, emphasis is placed on the effect of noise in the measurement of the required feedback quantities. Control of the pitch attitude of the AV-8A Harrier VTOL aircraft is used as an example of the application of the control concept. The model of the Harrier used in this study includes the effect of both sensor measurement errors and gust load inputs.
