Analysis of 9-D Filter and Observability Enhanced Guidance Law as Applied to Hit-To-Kill Missiles
In this day and age, the need for an ever more reliable missile defense system is becoming increasingly apparent. This need for increased reliability leads to the need for improving existing guidance, control, and estimation architectures. This paper analyzes a new suboptimal filter, 6-D, coupled with a guidance law specifically designed on enhance system observability during hit-to-kill applications. The results presented herein demonstrate the potential effectiveness of the filter/guidance combination against highly maneuvering, evasive targets.
