Design a Three-dimensional Pursuit Guidance Law with Feedback Linearization Method

Authors: Chien-Chun Kung, Feng-Lung Chiang, Kuei-Yi Chen


In this paper, we will implement three-dimensional pursuit guidance law with feedback linearization control method and study the effects of parameters. First, we introduce guidance laws and equations of motion of a missile. Pursuit guidance law is our highlight. We apply feedback linearization control method to obtain the accelerations to implement pursuit guidance law. The solution makes warhead direction follow with line-of-sight. Final, the simulation results show that the exact solution derived in this paper is correct and some factors e.g. control gain, time delay, are important to implement pursuit guidance law.

Keywords: Pursuit guidance law, feedback linearization.
