## Aerodynamic Forces and Coefficients

3.1 Aerodynamic Forces Relative to the Wind Axis System In this section we will discuss briefly the aerodynamic forces acting on a missile. In particular, and unless otherwise specified, we will assume a skid-to-turn missile because this technique is used in the majority of both surface-to-air and air-to-air missile applications (for more details see Section 3.3.2). However, the reader should be cautioned that both the aerodynamics and rigid-body dynamics are highly nonlinear. For a more...

Data Preparation Data preparation consists in selecting a fix point area large enough to accommodate the crosstrack and downtrack navigation arrival uncertainties, securing source material that contains contour information, and then digitizing the terrain elevation data into a matrix of cells oriented along the intended flight path. The source material is usually obtained from either topographic charts or from stereo aerial photographs of the terrain. The resulting reference matrix consists of...

Also, computation of the ambiguity between two profiles requires a model of the measured error distribution. The terrain correlation (TC) system is required to update the position of the cruise missile inertial navigation system (see also Section 7.4.7). Crosstrack errors in the inertial navigation system (INS) can cause the missile to cross the map at a slightly skewed...

## 36 English Bias

In order to compensate any aircraft steering error (i.e., a missile aiming error) that exists at launch, an English bias (or lead angle error) signal is provided that will command the missile to turn after launch. The fundamental idea of this command is to provide the means of correcting missile heading error prior to lock-on to the target and thereby minimize the time required after speedgate* lock to solve the guidance problem and effect a satisfactory intercept. At launch, the computer...

Typical low-altitude low angle delivery. too slow a speed results in a short hit, and too high a speed results in a long hit.

## Introduction

Rockets have been used as early as a.d. 1232, when the Chinese employed them as unguided missiles to repel the Mongol besiegers of the city of Pein-King (Peiping). Also, in the fifteenth century, Korea developed the sinkijon* (or Sin-Gi-Jeon) rocket. Manufactured from the early fifteenth to mid-sixteenth century, the sinkijon was actively deployed in the northern frontiers, playing a pivotal role in fending off invasions on numerous occasions. Once out of the rocket launcher, the fire-arrows...

The perturbation expansion, in the small coupling constant J, is most efficiently performed about the nominal trajectory plane. This is an adequate procedure when one is interested only in the cumulative perturbation for a time less than the period of the free-flight ellipse. The computation is most conveniently performed by separating the effects of downrange and crossrange components. Finally, we note that the force of gravitational attraction and hence the acceleration due to gravity may be...

In this section we will develop the ballistic missile flight model, summarizing the discussion of the previous sections. The development of this flight model will be treated as an example. It should be emphasized that this missile model is by no means complete, and is offered here as a guide for further study. The actual model will depend on the user requirements and missile designer analyst. In essence, the ballistic missile model provides the capability to model multistage missiles with...

This model is designed for a generic aircraft. A quaternion fast-processing technique will be employed to simulate aircraft navigation....

The guidance techniques discussed in Sections 4.2 and 4.4, that is, command guidance, semiactive homing, and ground-aided semiactive guidance, can be simulated based on threat characteristics. For the end game concept, we will consider a surface-to-air missile (SAM) interceptor. Regardless of the mission, however, all guided missiles, whether tactical or strategic, carry some kind of warhead. In this section, we will discuss briefly the concept of end game. End game consists of two parts (1)...

## 71 Introduction

A cruise missile can be defined as a dispensable, pilotless, self-guided, continuously powered, air-breathing vehicle that flies just like an airplane, supported by aerodynamic surfaces, and designed to deliver a conventional or nuclear device. Specifically, the cruise missile is powered by a small, high-efficiency turbofan engine in the 600-pound thrust class. Cruise missiles exist in three versions (1) land-based or ground-launched cruise missiles (GLCM), (2) sea-based or sea-launched cruise...

## 69 Ballistic Missile Intercept 691 Introduction

In recent years, several ballistic missile intercept concepts have been proposed as part of the overall ballistic missile defense (BMD) program. One such program was the midcourse concept. The missile defense technologies pursued presently include (a) the airborne laser (ABL), (b) the space-based laser (SBL), (c) the sea-based kinetic-energy kill concept, and (d) the space-based hit-to-kill experiment. The latter two are being considered to serve as hedges in case the directed-energy (DE)...

All-Sustain The all-sustain motor has low missile acceleration, resulting in lower aerodynamic drag and longer time of flight, for a given range. Since the motor burns for a long period of time, the motor can be used to overcome gravity in a look-up engagement, and to provide sufficient velocity for maneuvering at high altitude. This motor is suitable for head-on engagements, or in look-up engagements at high altitudes. Boost-Sustain The boost-sustain motor represents an attempt to combine the...

The need for precision tactical weapon delivery systems providing day night all-weather, low- and high-altitude capability against targets at ranges to 300 nm can be met by self-contained fail-safe and fault-tolerant guidance aids and advanced kinematic bombing subsystems. To support these, continued development and use of GPS, time-of-arrival (TOA) measurement, distance measuring equipment (DME), down-looking infrared (DLIR), forward-looking infrared (FLIR), moving target indication (MTI)...

## 42 Tactical Guidance Intercept Techniques 421 Homing Guidance

The expression homing guidance is used to describe a missile system that can sense the target by some means, and then guide itself to the target by sending commands to its own control surfaces. Homing is useful in tactical missiles where considerations such as autonomous (or fire-and-forget) operation usually require sensing of target motion to be done from the interceptor missile (or pursuer) itself. Consequently, in such cases the sensor limitations generally restrict the sensed target motion...

## 22 Rigid Body Equations of Motion

In this section we will consider a typical missile and derive the equations of motion according to Newton's laws. In deriving the rigid-body equations of motion, the following assumptions will be made 1. Rigid Body A rigid body is an idealized system of particles. Furthermore, it will be assumed that the body does not undergo any change in size or shape. Translation of the body results in that every line in the body remains parallel to its original position at all times. Consequently, the rigid...

## 55 Factors Influencing Weapon Delivery Accuracy

Before we discuss the various factors that influence weapon delivery accuracy, it is appropriate to briefly state the weapon delivery modes. The common weapon delivery modes are as follows Continuous computation of impact (i.e., target) point (CCIP) that is, compute the point on the ground where the weapon would impact if released at that instant. Continuous computation of release point (CCRP). Computer-generated release signal. Limitation of roll command steering (i.e., number of degrees of...

The voting procedure normally improves the overall correlation probability of an area as compared to a single map, but for some areas, there may only be terrain of sufficient size for a single map. Even so, a single map of sufficient length can be made to have the same equivalent overall correlation probability of the shorter map set of three. With regard to design feature e, some...

Where cjk is the direction cosine between the jth axis in the a frame and the kth axis in the b frame. Since each axis system has three unit vectors, there are nine direction cosines. Direction cosines have the advantage of being free of any singularities such as arise in the Euler angle formulation at 90 pitch angle. The main disadvantage of this method is the number of equations that must be solved due to the constraint equations. Note that by constraint equations we mean c11 c22c33 - c23c32,...
