Synthesis of Suboptimal Guidance Law for Anti-Tank Guided Missile with Terminal Impact Angle Constraint Based on the SDRE Technique
Keywords:terminal impact angle, SDRE, antitank guided missile (ATGM)
In this paper, the homing-phase guidance law is proposed against a stationary target in the planar engagement scenario. In this problem, two technical criteria that the guidance law must achieve are: first, zero terminal miss distance, and second, satisfying the desired impact angle constraint at the final time. This guidance law is synthesized as a nonlinear optimal control problem with an infinite-time horizon and is solved using the state-dependent Riccati equation (SDRE) method. To obtain a guidance law with a finite-time horizon, a state weighting matrix based on the time-to-go is utilized in the SDRE control scheme. The synthesized guidance law is applied to a new generation anti-tank guided missile class, with specific thrust and drag parameters. Nonlinear simulations are conducted to demonstrate the fundamental properties, applicability, and effectiveness of the proposed guidance law.
