A general decoupling configuration of the two-degree-of-freedom tracking control system is presented. In this configuration the closed-loop part, which satisfies the regulation requirements, and the prefilter part, which yields the desired command response, can be found independently of each other. When the controller is implemented, neither part interferes with the response characteristics that were shaped by the other part. The theory is shown to provide a new conceptual approach for the design of linear tracking control systems. It is applied to the design of nominal and decoupled flight control modes of the control-augmentation system for fighter aircrafts.
