Abstract:

A comparison of two different autopilot configurations and their effect on missile response is presented. The comparison includes the steps taken in determining missile parameters from wind tunnel data and flight condition data. The missile parameters are coupled with two different autopilot configurations to determine any significant advantage of one configuration over the other. Pole placement is used in determining required autopilot feedback and feed forward gains. Simulations of each autopilot are conducted and the responses are compared. Keywords Military thesis.
