This Proceedings contains the papers presented at the 15th IFAC Symposium on Automatic Control in Aerospace, which was held in Bologna/Forli, Italy, from 2-7 September 2001.

Even though space activity is slowing down, there are several reasons to believe that research into automatic control in aerospace will continue to be a field where the most advanced theories of automatic control are applied. One of these reasons is that, as is well known, within the next ten years the traditional navigational aids will be substituted by satellite-based systems such as GPS, GNSS etc. Consequently, there will be an intensification of studies on the control of aircraft both en route and in the terminal areas, and also on the manipulation and integration of data, as safety reasons prohibit reliance on satellite constellations alone. Moreover, satellites will play a major role in developing a global communication system. These changes and new visions require control engineers to solve many challenging and exciting engineering problems, and will encourage new ideas and practices.

The Symposium and its Proceedings demonstrate that research into automatic control in aerospace has the potential to address many more problems than are mentioned above. The papers in the Proceedings present solutions to real world problems using high-level theoretical tools such as internal-model-based control of non-linear systems, adaptive control of flexible systems, tracking and surveillance systems, robust avionics dead reckoning filtering, and pursuit-evasion games.

Another key aspect of the Symposium was the presentation of important applications already accomplished, or on the way to being implemented. Examples of this are space robotics for interplanetary missions, integration of conventional and satellite-based navigation, advances in missile guidance and control systems and last, but not least, the Galileo Project.

The Proceedings contains over 70 papers, including plenary papers by leading world experts. This volume will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in the present state and the future development of aerospace control systems.
