Tactical MissilesAutopilot DesignAerodynamic Control
— 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)Feb 20111
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).The effectiveness of a guided missile weapon system, in terms of accuracy and prob-ability of kill, depends greatly on the response characteristics of the complete guidance,control, and airframe loop. Since the accuracy or effectiveness of a guided missile de-pends greatly on the dynamics of the missile, particularly during the terminal phase of its flight, it is often desirable to predict its flight dynamics in the early preliminary-designphase to assure that a reasonably satisfactory missile configuration is realized.The missile control methods can be broadly classified under aerodynamic control andthrust vector control. Aerodynamic control can be further classified into Cartesian andpolar control methods while thrust vector control can be further classified under gim-baled motors, flexible nozzles (ball and socket), interference methods (spoilers/vanes),secondary fluid or gas injection and vernier engines (external or extra engines). Aero-dynamic control methods are generally used for tactical missiles.2
