Airborne Vehicle Guidance and Control Systems is a broad and wide- angled engineering and technological area for research, and continues to be important not only in military defense systems but also in industrial process control and in commercial transportation networks such as various Global Positioning Systems (GPS). The book fills a long-standing gap in the literature. The author is retired from the Air Force Institute and received the Air Force's Outstanding Civilian Career Service Award.
Stringent demands on modern guided weapon systems require new approaches to guidance, control, and estimation. There are requirements for pinpoint accuracy, low cost per round, easy upgrade paths, enhanced performance in counter-measure environments, and the ability to track low-observable targets. Advances in Missile Guidance, Control, and Estimation brings together in one volume the latest developments in the three major missile-control components—guidance, control, and estimation—as well as advice on implementation. It also shows how these elements contribute to the overall missile design process. Shares Insights from Well-Known Researchers and Engineers from Israel, Korea, France, Canada, the UK, and the US The book features contributions by renowned experts from government, the defense industry, and academia from the United States, Israel, Korea, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. It starts from the ground up, developing equations of missile motion. It reviews the kinematics of the engagement and the dynamics of the target and missile before delving into autopilot design, guidance, estimation, and practical implementation issues. Covers Nonlinear Control Techniques as Well as Implementation Issues The book discusses the design of autopilots using new nonlinear theories and analyzes the performance over a flight envelope of Mach number and altitude. It also contains a chapter on the recent integrated-guidance-and-control approach, which exploits the synergy between the autopilot and guidance system design. The book then outlines techniques applied to the missile guidance problem, including classical guidance, sliding mode-based, and differential game-based techniques. A chapter on the use of differential games integrates the guidance law with the estimation of the target maneuver. A chapter on particle filter describes the latest development in filtering algorithms. The final chapters—written by engineers working in the defense industry in the US, Israel, and Canada—consider the design and implementation issues of a command-to-line-of-sight guidance system and autopilots. An Invaluable Resource on the State of the Art of Missile Guidance A guide to advanced topics in missile guidance, control, and estimation, this invaluable book combines state-of-the-art theoretical developments presented in a tutorial form and unique practical insights. It looks at how tracking, guidance, and autopilot algorithms integrate into a missile system and guides control system designers through the challenges of the design process.
Written by an expert with more than 30 years of experience, Modern Missile Guidance contains new analytical results, obtained by the author, that can be used for analysis and design of missile guidance and control systems. This book covers not just new methods nor is it merely a compilation of older methods, although it includes both. The book discusses, in a logical progression, with its clear elucidation of the guidance laws, the entire field from missile dynamics to modeling and testing missile guidance and control systems. In contrast to existing books that discuss very simple and often unrealistic guidance system models, this book presents missile guidance models that describe more precisely the dynamics of the missile flight control system, making analytical results more effective in practice. The analysis of missile guidance system models in the time-domain and in the frequency-domain allows the generation of different guidance laws that supplement each other. Taking modern, rigorous approach that leads to improved performance in missile guidance applications, the book examines new guidance laws, and corresponding algorithms for generating and testing these laws, and includes effective new software programs developed by the author. The author provides an innovative presentation of the theoretical aspects of modern missile guidance that quite possibly cannot be found in any other book. It delineates new ideas that, once crystallized, will significantly improve missile systems performance.
This book is concerned with dynamical systems under a large uncertainty, and uses a min-max approach to achieve worst-case design. The book consists of two parts. The first part deals with robust control. It begins by developing linear controls to achieve relative stability (pole clustering) under parameter uncertainty. Surprisingly, the largest robustness radius in the parameter space is sometimes discontinuous (fragile) with respect to the control parameters. Then, the book discusses the control of nonlinear uncertain systems under matching conditions. The second part uses differential games to develop optimal guidance for homing missiles against maneuvering targets. The target maneuver is bounded, but otherwise, arbitrary. Using miss distance as the cost, the book develops closed form guidance laws, as well as miss distance formulae. In this way, the control loop (autopilot) and the guidance loop are coupled. A parameter study reveals the basic difference between minimum phase (canards) and non-minimum phase (tail control) missiles. It also shows the influence of the autopilot parameters on the miss distance."
This Second Edition continues the fine tradition of its predecessor by exploring the various automatic control systems in aircraft and on board missiles. Considerably expanded and updated, it now includes new or additional material on: the effectiveness of beta-beta feedback as a method of obtaining coordination during turns using the F-15 as the aircraft model; the root locus analysis of a generic acceleration autopilot used in many air-to-air and surface-to-air guided missiles; the guidance systems of the AIM-9L Sidewinder as well as bank-to-turn missiles; various types of guidance, including proportional navigation and line-of-sight and lead-angle command guidance; the coupling of the output of a director fire control system into the autopilot; the analysis of multivariable control systems; and methods for modeling the human pilot, plus the integration of the human pilot into an aircraft flight control system. Also features many new additions to the appendices.
Differential Game Theory with Applications to Missiles and Autonomous Systems explains the use of differential game theory in autonomous guidance and control systems. The book begins with an introduction to the basic principles before considering optimum control and game theory. Two-party and multi-party game theory and guidance are then covered and, finally, the theory is demonstrated through simulation examples and models and the simulation results are discussed. Recent developments in the area of guidance and autonomous systems are also presented. Key features: Presents new developments and how they relate to established control systems knowledge. Demonstrates the theory through simulation examples and models. Covers two-party and multi-party game theory and guidance. Accompanied by a website hosting MATLAB® code. The book is essential reading for researchers and practitioners in the aerospace and defence industries as well as graduate students in aerospace engineering.
