Robustness concepts are discussed in the context of helicopter system identification and model validation. Classification of robustness issues is proposed in terms of experimental design aspects, identification methods, model structure estimation, parameter estimation and overall robustness of a complete mathematical model developed using system identification. This section of the AGARD Advisory Report 280 also includes proposals for associated tests of robustness and recommendations relating to each of the aspects considered. Emphasis is given to the need for a good user-interface and for reliable software tools for model structure identification. The need for preliminary flight trials to help in the design of identification experiments is emphasised, as is the need to establish good design criteria for verification inputs.
