The control laws having a form of kinematic relations between deviations in the automatic control of a flying object

Edyta Ładyżyńska-Kozdraś
The paper presents some practical applications of control laws in dynamics of flying objects. The control laws considered have the form of kinematics and geometrical deviation relations between the actual parameters and those specified that result from guidance of the considered object. The specified parameters were introduced into the control laws as: parameters determined by motion of the target in the guided missile or motion parameters of the beam tracking the target. A general model of dynamical behaviour of the guided object was employed in the considerations.
Keywords: automatic control of missiles; homing and beam-riding guidance; numerical simulations
