The adaptation method of the maneuvering frequency is
where [[alpha].sub.0] is the initial maneuvering frequency, M is the high maneuver detection threshold, generally taking 3 [22].
In the proposed FCPF algorithm, the maneuver detection is achieved by a fuzzy controller, which will calculate the probability of maneuvering according to the sliding residual and the trend of sliding residual.
Suppose the true maneuvering start time is k - D, but we detect it at time k, and then MMPF is adopted from the status at time k.
They point out that the institutional preconditions for strategic maneuvering in argumentative discourse conducted in plenary debates in European parliament are determined by the characteristics of this argumentative activity type but also by the diverse national and political backgrounds of the European parliamentarians that play at this stage of European development an important part in how in argumentative practice the parliamentarians try to achieve unity in diversity.
She discusses the most important characteristics of this type of argumentative discourse and demonstrates how they may affect strategic maneuvering when staging argumentation from example.
Second, the more problematic result is the strong preference for vertical maneuvering, in spite of its apparent reduced level of safety (as operationally defined here by the predicted conflict measure) and its inconsistency with the general Federal Aviation Administration regulation incorporated in FAR 91.113.
However, unlike the choice between lateral and vertical maneuvering, or climbing versus descending, it is the case that left-right or toward-away maneuvers are relatively symmetric options in terms of complexity and efficiency; they also appear to be safety neutral in terms of the operational definition used here (Figure 6).

As far as the AOPA ASF is concerned, "When you operate in the traffic pattern, do aerial work or formation flying, or practice stalls and spins, you perform maneuvering flight." The high number of accidents during these flight operations is almost enough to make us want to ask, "Why can't Johnny fly?" The answer is that Johnny can fly just fine; he just can't seem to make safe decisions on how and when to turn, how low is too low and when to keep up the speed.
In addition, VMFT-401 F-5s conduct evasive maneuvering with MAWTS-1's AH-1s and defensive maneuvering with CH-53 Sea Stallions, UH-1 "Hueys" and CH-46 Sea Knights.
