In this paper a parameter estimation technique is proposed which allows for direct updates to the aerodynamic coefficients represented in the form of table lookup. The proposed method is capable of capturing the nonlinearities in the coefficients. It is also possible to capture joint dependence of the coefficient on one or more independent variables. The estimation is cast in the form of linear least squares problem. The recursive form of this algorithm is also proposed. The results are demonstrated using simulated data as well as flight data.
