Abstract:

This thesis is an application of parameter sensitivity analysis to aerodynamic parameters of a Bank-to-Turn missile. In the development a brief review of trajectory sensitivity theory is presented. A linear analysis is performed using an Uncoupled Pitch Channel Autopilot and a Coupled Roll-Yaw Channel Autopilot of the missile taken as model. Finally, a nonlinear analysis is given for the system. Comparisons between the linear and nonlinear cases are outlined. Author
