New Topics Under Review

The FM-GoR has identified a lot of topics on which to work and is currently selecting the topics on which to focus on.
Examples of future topics:
- More electric RPAS, civil research
- Robust / Adaptive Flight Control Laws
- Flexible / rigid mode Flight Control Laws
- Improved and simple analysis tools in control law validation
- Validation / certification
- ...
