A new method for full-rank state-feedback pole assignment is introduced. A particular advantage of this method is that no freedom in the design parameters is lost. Hence, further design problems such as robust pole assignment in uncertain systems are alleviated. An application of this feature is shown for a particular linear model of the F16 aircraft. The connections between state feedback and several concepts in the literature such as incomplete input feedback, incomplete state feedback, output feedback and incomplete pole assignment are also given.
