Expert system for flight control – simulation study

Roman Simiński, Tomasz Heflik


This paper presents the conception, realization and simulation study of intelligent component dedicated to aiding the decision making process in flight control. This component was implemented as embedded expert system containing rule knowledge base, forward inference engine and explanation module. The simulation environment was implemented for simulations. Presented work contains some necessary background information, description of conception, realization and simulation study of realized software.
