Abstract : The terminal phase of encounter between a radar guided missile and a highly maneuverable aircraft, Which can employ also electronic counter measures, is formulated as an imperfect information zero-sum pursuit-evasion game played between the missile designer and the pilot of the target aircraft. For this scenario a new method of guidance law synthesis, based on the concept of optimal mixed strategies, is developed and implemented. The mixed guidance law design approach is based on a rigorous mathematical framework and leads to feasible solutions which guarantee that the single shot kill probability (SSKP) of the missile is higher than the value achievable by any other presently used guidance law.
