The globally exponential stability of nonlinear impulsive networked control systems (NINCS) with time delay and packet dropouts is investigated. By applying Lyapunov function theory, sufficient conditions on the global exponential stability are derived by introducing a comparison system and estimating the corresponding Cauchy matrix. An impulsive controller is explicitly designed to achieve exponential stability and ensure state converge with a given decay rate for the system. The Lorenz oscillator system is presented as a numerical example to illustrate the theoretical results and effectiveness of the proposed controller design procedure.
