Three computer simulations of command to line-of-sight missile guidance systems were developed within an electronic warfare environment to test the feasibility of improved guidance techniques while maintaining simplicity for generic application among the various missiles of this general guidance classification. The first simulation modeled the basic guidance scheme; the second introduced a "lead-angle" concept; and the third simulation combined these techniques for use depending upon whether the target took evasive action or employed electronic countermeasures . It was found that consideration should be given for use of a "lead-angle" variant in conjunction with the basic guidance technique to enhance the effective engagement envelope of these missile systems against relatively slower-maneuvering targets employing only low-duty-cycle denial jamming.
