The pursuit-evasion aspect of the two aircraft combat problem is introduced as a fixed time, zero sum, perfect information differential game. A realistic aircraft model is presented for which a solution of this combat problem is desired. Because of the non-linear dynamics associated with this model, an optimal closed-loop solution cannot be obtained. Three additional simplified aircraft models are introduced as approximations to the realistic model. Optimal solutions and closed-loop control laws are obtained for each of these models. Analysis of these solutions and control laws enables the formulation of an approximate closed-loop control law for use with the original realistic model.
