**Definition for a missile
**

• A missile can be defined as an aerospace vehicle with varying guidance capabilities that is self propelled through space for the purpose of inflicting damage on a designated target. • Fabricated for air-to-air, surface to air and surface to surface roles.

**Components of a guided missile

• • • • Airframe Guidance Motor (or propulsion) Warhead

Airframe

• The type and size depends on

– Guidance characteristics – Motor size – Warhead size

Guidance

• Guidance is the means by which a missile steers or is steered to a target. • The type of guidance is also dependent on the motor, warhead and threat. • More specifically, the type of guidance chosen is dependent on the overall weapon system in which the missile will be used, on the type of threat the missile will be used against, the characteristics of the threat target, and other factors.

Motor

• The motor characteristics depends on

– Guidance requirements – The threat – Airframe characteristics

July – December 2008

Warhead

• Dependent on the threat and type of guidance • The common procedure is to size the guidance requirements (e.g. accuracy, response time, range capability) from the threat, select an airframe that can deliver the required aerodynamic performance, size the motor based on threat and airframe considerations and size the warhead from guidance and airframe considerations.

**Basic factors affecting the missile design
**

• • • • Threat Operating environment Cost State of the art

– Since the last three is normally known, the missile design centers on meeting the threat in the environment with the state of the art, at minimum cost.

July – December 2008

prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal

12

**Factors affecting motor type selection
**

• Aerodynamic heating due to the incremental missile velocity • Aerodynamic drag, which decreases missile velocity • Maximum altitude at which the missile must perform • Maximum and minimum intercept ranges required.

July – December 2008

prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal

13

**Types of missile motors: All Boost
**

• It typically will make the missile accelerate rapidly, causing high peak velocities. However, this causes high missile drag, high aerodynamic heating, and short time of flight, for a given range • This is suitable for a rear hemisphere, tail chase encounter.

July – December 2008 prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal 14

**Types of Missile Motors: All Sustain
**

• It has low acceleration, resulting in lower aerodynamic drag and longer time of flight, for a given range. • It can be used in a look up engagement, and to provide sufficient velocity for maneuvering at high altitude. • The motor is suitable for head on engagements, or in look-up engagements at high altitudes

July – December 2008 prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal 15

**Types of missile motors: Boost Sustain
**

• The boost sustain motor represents an attempt to combine the best features of the all-boost and allsustain designs.

Missile speed

• Guided tactical missiles are sometimes referred to according to their airspeed relative to the speed of sound and their type of propulsion system • The highest rate of airspeed that can be reached safely and still ensure correct operation is considered as that missile’s classification. The common classification are

– – – – Subsonic (airspeeds less than mach 1) Sonic (airspeeds equal to mach 1) Supersonic (airspeeds ranging between mach 1 and mach 5) Hypersonic (airspeeds exceeding mach 5)

**Skid to turn (STT) missile
**

• It is the commonly used in analysis and design of surface to air and air to air weapon systems • The reason is the inertial cross coupling between roll, pitch and yaw is negligible. • Both aerodynamics and rigid body dynamics are highly non linear

**Response of the system
**

• The pitch/yaw plane rotational responses behave like a spring mass damper system. It is given as: • The equation can also be written as: where

**Modeling drag and lift
**

• For the purposes of control design, drag can be modeled by parabolic drag form • If Lift is considered as control, it is subjected to the constraint where W is the weight and gm(v) represents the load factor limit, which may arise due to a structural limit, control surface actuator, or autopilot stability considerations. In general, lift is a function of missile speed.

July – December 2008 prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal 23

Load factor expression

• The dynamics for the angle of attack (AOA), α, as well as dα/dt, load factor nz and pitch rate are commonly modeled after the short period approximations of longitudinal motion. • The short period of attack is given by the following transfer function

**Dynamics of load factor in pitch plane
**

• The load factor and angle of attack transfer functions are identical in form. • Specifically, the dynamics for the load factor in the pitch plane, nz, can be modeled by the following transfer function

July – December 2008

prv/System Modeling Coursework/MIT-Manipal

26

**Dynamics of load factor in pitch plane
**

• The parameters ζ,ω and Tα can be found by linear analysis of the entire closed loop system. • This transfer function is valid provided that the laod factor being modeled is located at the centre of pressure, that is , the point ahead of the centre of gravity where the effect of pitch acceleration and horizontal tail force cancel.

**The Missile Guidance system model
**

• Guidance is the means by which a missile steers, or is steered, to a target. • A guided missile is guided according to a certain guidance law. • The inputs are target location and missile to target separation. • The desired output is that the missile have the same location as the target

Radar, infrared, laser or optical) Track the target continuously after acquisition Measure the LOS (Line of sight) angular rate dλ/dt. Stabilise the seeker against a missile pitching rate dθm/dt (also, yawing rate) that may be much larger than the LOS rate dλ/dt to be measured. Measure the closing velocity Vc.
