Comparison of the Linear Homing, Parabolic Homing and Proportional Navigation Guidance Methods on a Two-Part Homing Missile against a Surface Target
In this study, it is aimed at comparing the performance of the guidance methods called Linear Homing Guidance (LHG), Parabolic Homing Guidance (PHG), and Proportional Navigation Guidance (PNG) on a missile with two relatively rotating parts against a surface target. In this extent, first the dynamic model of the missile is constructed. Next, the guidance laws LHG, PHG, and PNG are formulated. Modelling the target kinematics as well, the entire guidance and control system is built by integrating all the models mentioned above, and the relevant computer simulations are carried out. Consequently, the simulation results are discussed and the study is evaluated.
