Modeling and Controller Design for the Air-to-Air Missile Uncertain System

Yanjun Liang, Junqi Liang, Zhongsheng Wang


The guidance and control problem of the air-to-air missile system is studied. A nonlinear, coupling dynamic model of the air-to-air missile with six degrees of freedom is investigated, and a uncertain control system is proposed according to some assumptions and simplifications. Then, based on Lyapunov stability theory, a Lyapunov function is employed, and a controller is designed for the air-to-air missile. Numerical simulations show that the control system proves the correctness and has preferably tracking performance and illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
