Abstract:

In this report, we show that variational techniques can be applied to solve games with differential constraints. Conditions for capture and for optimality are derived for a class of optimal pursuit-evasion problems. Results are used to demonstrate that the well known proportional navigation law is actually an optimal intercept strategy.
