Abstract:

The report presents the findings of a preliminary study to evaluate thrust magnitude control in Air Force Missions in general and for bomber defense missiles in particular. The first two phases of the study--a survey of the application of optimal control theory to the analysis of thrust magnitude control, and preparation of mathematical formulations for quantative analysis of specific applications--are reviewed. Then the techniques employed and results obtained in the third phase of the study-analysis of horizontal rectilinear flight of a bomber defense missile--are described. Author
