Lateral Autopilot
— D Viswanath
I am most grateful to my Dr. S. E. Talole, for introducing me to this subject. Histeachings have been my source of motivation throughout this work.(D Viswanath)Dec 20101
Broadly speaking autopilots either control the motion in the pitch and yaw planes, inwhich they are called lateral autopilots, or they control the motion about the fore andaft axis in which case they are called roll autopilots. Lateral ”g” autopilots are designedto enable a missile to achieve a high and consistent ”g” response to a command. Theyare particularly relevant to SAMs and AAMs. There are normally two lateral autopilots,one to control the pitch or up-down motion and another to control the yaw or left-rightmotion.The requirements of a good lateral autopilot are very nearly the same for commandand homing systems but it is more helpful initially to consider those associated withcommand systems where guidance receiver produces signals proportional to the mis-alignment of the missile from the line of sight (LOS).2
