This study investigates nonlinear reliable output tracking control issues. Both passive and active reliable control laws are proposed using Variable Structure Control technique. These reliable laws need not the solution of Hamilton-Jacobi (HI) equation or inequality, which are essential for optimal approaches such as LQR and H reliable designs. As a matter of fact, this approach is able to relax the computational burden for solving the HJ equation. The proposed reliable designs are also applied to a bank-to-turn missile system to illustrate their benefits.
