Abstract:

A number of guidance laws which may be used in an air-to-air homing missile are presented. Primary emphasis is given to forms which use proportional navigation augmented by line of sight acceleration. It is concluded that the addition of the line of sight acceleration to proportional navigation does not significantly improve the terminal accuracy of homing missiles. Author
