Definition: Given the system
Controllability: The pair (A,B) is said to be controllable iff at the initial time t0 there exist a control function u(t) which will transfer the system from its initial state x(t0) to the origin in some finite time. If this statement is true for all time, then the system is "Completely Controllable".
The projectile control problem can be viewed as an impulsive dynamical system, whose analysis can be quite involved. In the general situation, such systems can exhibit infinitely many switches, beating, etc.
Controllability of hybrid systems is a hot topic currently, and despite the numerous papers on the topic efficient numerical algorithms that provide control algorithms is still lacking.
