Abstract

A program developed and used to evaluate the performance of missile guidance and control systems is introduced in the article. The simulation applied on a six-degree-of-freedom BTT missile in pursuit of a three-degree-of-freedom evading target includes several variables. Nonlinear features observed in missile dynamics attracted the interest of some researches, hence programs addressed to the problem are developed. The two are as follows; (1) a mainframe program which offers an excellent missile model, and (2) a program developed on the personal computer. The creatively designed missile-target engagement described is simulated and displayed using the C/C++ programming language.
