An extremum-seeking control system for formation flight that uses blended performance parameters in a conglomerate performance function that better approximates drag reduction than performance functions formed from individual measurements. Generally, a variety of different measurements are taken and fed to a control system, the measurements are weighted, and are then subjected to a peak-seeking control algorithm. As measurements are continually taken, the aircraft will be guided to a relative position which optimizes the drag reduction of the formation. ...
1. A method for formation flight control of aircraft using an extremum-seeking computer controller in communication with at least two different aircraft flight sensors, the method comprising the computer controller performing the steps of: deriving a first performance function for flight formation of said aircraft as a function of a first aircraft performance parameter;deriving a second performance function for flight formation of said aircraft as a function of a second aircraft performance parameter;deriving a conglomerate performance function for fligh...
