In this work, design of three-dimensional (3D) proportional navigation guidance law based on input-output linearization (IOL) for tactical missiles is proposed. For the three-dimensional nonlinear missile-target engagement dynamics, the line-of-sight (LOS) rates in pitch and yaw planes are taken as outputs and the IOL theory is used to derive the guidance laws without ignoring the cross-coupling terms. Simulations are carried out by considering maneuvering target, and the results are presented to showcase the efficacy of the proposed design. Further, comparison of the performance of the proposed guidance law with augmented proportional navigation guidance(APNG) laws is carried out and the related results are presented. Lastly, implementation issues of the proposed guidance law are discussed.
