Terminal guidance of the missile against an evasive target is explored. The two main types of guidance laws employed in the majority of missiles, namely proportional navigation and command to line-of-sight are modeled using Matlab(registered) Simulink(Trademark). The two-dimensioned missile-target intercept geometry is simulated for a point mass missile and target. Missile velocity due to its drag also factored. The engagement results for different scenarios with target doing a 9-g evasive maneuver are then compared to analyze the performance of hybrid proportional navigation guidance with bang-bang control.
