In this chapter, state feedback controller with the help of full state feedback method or pole placement technique is designed to stabilize the lateral dynamics of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Poles of the system are chosen such that system’s performance meets the design specifications with the help of MATLAB. This chapter also analyzes the transient specifications.
