Abstract:

In estimating the state of thrustingballistic endoatmospheric projectiles for the end purpose of impact point prediction IPP, the total observation time, the wind effect and the sensor accuracy significantly affect the IPP performance. First the tracker accounting for the wind effect is presented. Following this, based on the multiple interacting multiple model MIMM estimator developed recently, a sensitivity study of the IPP performance with respect to the total observation time, the wind strength and direction and the sensor accuracy is presented.
