Abstract

In this study, the generic dynamic models of air-to-surface missiles are given in addition to the related guidance and control schemes. In this extent, two-part missile configurations are considered as well as the traditional single-part missile geometries. The dynamic modelling part consists of the general equations of motion for both of the mentioned types of missile configurations, aerodynamic modelling and corresponding transfer functions, which are used in the design of missile autopilots. Further, the notable guidance laws applicable to such missiles are given along with the relevant autopilot, or missile control system, models. Regarding the mission profile of these munitions, the target is modelled as a surface vehicle moving on the ground. After conducting some computer simulations based on the proposed models, the study is concluded by a general evaluation section.
