The High Performance Bounded (HPB) control methodology is based upon the idea of using progressively higher gains as the system approaches equilibrium to avoid control saturation and improve performance. In this paper a new theoretical result is presented that allows the incorporation of position and rate constraints into the HPB methodology. This result is improved upon by expanding the stabilization region using a Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) formulation. Finally, the methodology is applied to the lateral directional control of the F/A-18 HARV (High Alpha Research Vehicle), using a nonlinear simulator.
