Abstract:

The simulation models and baseline guidance and control described in this report were developed to define performance requirements for the airframe, propulsion, guidance, autopilot, and control systems for strapdown-inertially guided indirect-fire missiles. A type of proportional navigation guidance using missile to target relative velocity and position is derived and has the property of being able to shape the missile trajectory for range extension and instrument error minimization. Typical inputs for inertial instruments and control system performance and sizing are obtained. Author
