Keywords: aerodynamics, nonlinear, unstable, identification, flight test
This paper presents five direct identification methods for nonlinear aerodynamics of unstable aircraft applied to the JAS 39 Gripen fighter using flight test data. This type of identification is hard under the best of circumstances. Results are shown for both simulations and real flight test in the transonic envelop.
