Abstract:

This development addresses midcourse guidance problems of air-to- surface weapons. It emphasizes methodology for guidance law selection, prelaunch alignment of the missile, and postlaunch update. The development involved both survey and analysis. The survey portion of the study resulted in the evaluation of inertial sensors, RF sensors, and discrete update procedures. The analysis portion of the study resulted in the definition of a guidance law, a comparison of several alignment techniques and update techniques.
