Combining adaptive theory with an advanced second-order sliding mode control algorithm, a roll stabilization controller with aerodynamic disturbance and actuator failure consideration for spinning flight vehicles is proposed in this paper. The presented controller is summarized as an “observer-controller” system. More specifically, an adaptive second-order sliding mode observer is presented to select the proper design parameters and estimate the knowledge of aerodynamic disturbance and actuator failure, while the proposed roll stabilization control scheme can drive both roll angle and rotation rate smoothly converge to the desired value. Theoretical analysis and numerical simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
