A Generalized Payoff for Differential Game Role Determination in a Two Aircraft Combat
AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
The problem investigated is a method of role determination, using a general purpose of payoff, in a differential game model of aerial combat. Role determination is taken to mean a combatants selection of a combat objective, based on his relative advantage. The class of game is two person, free time, zero sum and perfect information. The aircraft dynamics are restricted to constant speed in the horizontal plane. The controls for both players are limited turn rates. A fixed weapon range establishes a terminal constraint around one player. Using limits on the payoff, a game of kind is formulated to give successful termination at weapon range for both players.
