An Expanded Two-Dimensional Proportional–Derivative Command to Line-of-Sight Guidance Law

  • Borislav G. PenevEmail author


This paper deals with an expanded two-dimensional (2D) proportional-derivative (PD) command to line-of-sight (CLOS) guidance law which fights the spiral type trajectory of an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) in the plane perpendicular to the line-of-sight (LOS) or the so called picture plane, in order to improve the transition process performance while putting the missile onto the LOS. The guidance law acts as a classical PD control law within a small predetermined area around the LOS while at missile deviations pointing a position outside this area the control law includes additional nonlinear components connected with the derivatives of the missile position vector in the plane perpendicular to the LOS. The global asymptotic stability of the guidance loop is established by a specific positive definite Lyapunov function. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is illustrated by simulation results. The guidance law enables to decrease the near-field boundary of the missile operational range.
