This paper conducts a stochastic root-locus analysis to explore the variation of k-gains that improve HQ characteristics of an aircraft. A stochastic analysis is used to consider parameter uncertainty on the state-space representation of the system. Based on the analysis, we discuss how we differentiate complex systems from control point-of-view.
