This paper proposed a distributed cooperative guidance strategy in order to achieve multi-missile cooperative attack the maneuvering target. Firstly, \( H_{\infty } \) robust guidance law is adopted to intercept the maneuvering target, which can keep strong robustness and eliminate the prediction of the acceleration of the target. Then the theory of network synchronization is used to design the cooperative guidance components, which is no need to estimate the impact time manually and can make state of all the missiles gradually converge automatically. Finally, De Bruijn network is used to build the local interactions, which has good fault tolerant property, flexibility and high reliability to support large-scale missiles cooperative attacks. The simulation results verifies that the law can drive all the missiles salvo attack the maneuvering target simultaneously.
