    Real-time estimation of aircraft aerodynamic models is very essential for adaptive and indirect13; reconfigurable controLln this report a literature survey of some of the available real time techniques13; for aircraft aerodynamic parameter estimation is presented. A time domain algorithm based on UD13; factorization extenged Kalman filter (UDEKF) and a frequency domain algorithm based on recursive13; discrete Fourier transform (OFT) for real-time estimation of aircraft longitudinal and lateral13; aerodynamic parameters are implemented and validated using simulated data in PC/MATLAB13; environment. The robustness of the algorithms to noise, bias and drift is tested using simulated data13; of the longitudinal short period and lateral Dutch roll dynamics of an aircraft. A comparison is also13; made between the performance of the time domain and frequency domain techniques to ascertain13; their suitability for real time parameter estimation. It is observed that the OFT outperforms UOEKF13; in terms of parameter estimation error norm, error bounds and requires less computational time.
