Abstract:

This work follows Capt. R.L. Riddles 1989 thesis ADA216147 which compared conventional, H2Hardy space with finite 2-norm and H infinity Hardy space with finite infinity norm and H infinity controlled guided missiles in simulated flyouts against an airborne target. The simulation results did not clearly demonstrate the H2 and H infinity controller advantages. In this study the missile model and simulation were refined. In addition to simulation runs, performance, noise attenuation, and mu structural singular value robustness analyses were conducted. Results showed areas where improvement was needed in the H2 and H infinity controllers used in the study. An H2 and H infinity controller redesign is recommended using the mu synthesis design technique. Additional simulation runs are also recommended to examine whether the improved controllers reduce miss distances.
