Missile Guidance Training


Missile Guidance Training Course Description

This Missile Guidance Training presents both fundamental concepts and practical implementation of parallel navigation. It dedicated to missile guidance. The guidance law design is considered from the point of view of control theory, i.e., as design of controls guiding missiles to hit targets. Guidance laws design is considered as design of controls. The design procedure is presented in the time-domain and in the frequency-domain. The different approaches, in the time and frequency domain, generate different guidance laws that supplement each other. The proportional navigation is considered also as a control problem.

A wider class of guidance laws is obtained based on Lyapunov approach. The analytical expressions of the guidance law are given for the generalized planar and three-dimensional engagement models for missiles with and without axial controlled acceleration. The Lyapunov-Bellman approach is used to justify the choice of some guidance law parameters.

The problem of the integrated design of guidance and control laws is discussed. The problem of modification of the existing autopilots is presented as a problem of new guidance laws design. Computational aspects of missile guidance are considered. As an example, the application of the theory to design of the boost-phase interceptors is considered.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
