This thesis deals with a simulation of a missile versus target engagement scenario. After driving simplified transfer functions for the missile seeker head, missile autopilot, missile dynamics, and target dynamics, a three dimensional simulation is developed using classical proportional navigation. The scenario is simulated using state variable design. A forward time solution of the two dimensional problem is developed which is converted to an adjoint model. The adjoint model is used to determine the optimal time to initiate simplified and tactical evasion maneuvers in order to maximize the final miss distance.
