COMPARISON BETWEEN THE PURSUIT GUIDANCE AND THE PROPORTIONAL NAVIGATION GUIDANCE LAWS REGARDING A PREDETERMINED SCENARIO
In tactical missile design, it is highly crucial to select the proper guidance method in order to meet the scenario requirements. As it is applicable in every aspect of life, trade-off conditions should be measured meticulously to reach the most advantageous and economical outcome. In this study, a particular scenario with a manoeuvring target is taken into consideration. Two of the guidance laws, namely, the pursuit guidance and the proportional navigation guidance are then implemented and compared. Lastly, the effect of the missile acceleration is examined within the proportional navigation guidance to consolidate the study.
